Русский "mock English"

С. 141-149.

The article deals with the concept of “mock language” on the example of English-related lingual units being used jocularly or ironically by Russian speakers, that is, with Russian “mock English”. The primary emphasis is laid on the strategies of the English language carnivalesque spoofing, on “speaking from under a verbal mask” in the process of the Russian language Englishization. These practices are theorized within the framework of transligualism and translanguaging approach as the manifestations of translingual creativity.
