"Лингвокультурный конфликт" и его "наивная" метаязыковая интерпретация (на материале взаимодействия современного русского языка с английским)

Личность. Культура. Общество. 2011. Т. 13. № 4(67-68). С. 177-183.

The article deals with the current tendency towards an increase in Russian speakers’ verbalized metalinguistic reflection on language and culture contact, generated by growing exposure to global English and the influx of Anglicisms. Of crucial importance to cross-cultural research are metalinguistic commentaries, in which lay speakers register their negative attitude to those borrowings from English which reflect cultural norms and values clashing with the system of traditional Russian cultural norms and values. This is defined as a "linguacultural clash" or "linguacultural conflict"; its negatively marked metalinguistic interpretation is seen as part of speakers' "linguistic self-defense".
