Русский язык в Дагестане: проблемы языковой интерференции

С. 186-211.

In Daghestan, the number of Russian speakers has been dramatically increasing over the last few decades. Russian has assumed the functional niche previously vacant in this extremely multilingual setting, becoming the first ever lingua franca of the region as a whole. Russian is acquired in a situation of strong interaction with local languages and shows contact properties on various linguistic levels: phonetics, morphology, syntax and lexicon. Its regional variant is also visibly developing as a self-identification device. The aim of this paper to discuss some (socio)linguistic properties of this idiom, attribute them either to interference or to imperfect learning, and to argue for building a corpus of Daghestanian Russian.
