Russian Advanced Course: Glossary to Alexander Solzhenitsyn's Novel "One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich."
Defense Language Inst., Washington, DC.
This glossary is intended to assist students seeking to broaden their knowledge of Russian as it is currently spoken. The lexical items, largely consisting of idioms and colloquialisms, are listed with English translations, in the order of their appearance in the text and grouped to correspond to each individual page of the book. The novel is suggested for use in advanced Russian classes as an exemplary cross-cultural study of Russian society, illustrating differences in educational, social, and economic levels. Social strata and ethnic groups are also reflected through differing styles of speech and dialectal variation. (RL)
