Englishization of Russian and bilingual lexical variation

This paper aims to show that due to the increase in mass English-Russian bilingualism the notion of lexical variation generated by Englishization should not be restricted to the traditionally studied opposition of English loanwords vs. their host language equivalents, but should be broadened to embrace a wider range of Englishized lexical units. This will include borrowings from English, recurrent English-Russian code-switches, and a number of intermediate phenomena between them. This paper argues that there is a tendency for different Englishized lexis expressing the same denotational semantics not to be ousted in the process of assimilation, but rather to be settled in a series of variants which index different contextual information and render different socio-pragmatic connotations, especially in written discourse in various domains. Bilingual lexical variation, one of the most visible trends in modern Russian, testifies to the increase in its Englishization, facilitates the process of further Englishization, and contributes to the formation of Russian English.

This paper aims to show that the notion of lexical variation needs to be broadened due to the globalization of English and the increase in mass English-Russian bilingualism. Interlingual or bilingual lexical variation uniting various ways of rendering similar denotational semantics in a series of variants is examplified by the lexeme VIP/vip – ВИП/вип. ...

The paper aims to outline the major strategies of translingual English-Russian practices in Russia today. Based on widespread Russian-English/Roman-Cyrillic digraphia, these strategies generate ambivalent, language-neutral units, which cannot be unequivocally assigned to either of the languages or written systems in contact, in modern written Russian-based discourse. The article analyses the examples from two communicative spheres ...

This paper presents a corpus based analysis of morphosyntactic errors made by Finnish Russian heritage speakers belonging to the second generation of Russian emigrants in Finland. The study reveals that the speech of bilingual speakers of two inflecting languages with ramified systems of case marking practically does not develop analyticity and attrition of case government in prepositional phrases. The incomplete acquisition of government manifests itself as a mixture of correct and incorrect forms of oblique cases induced by the prepositional pattern of the dominant language. ...

People with aphasia frequently have difficulties understanding semantically reversible sentences presented in derived word order. This impairment may be related to the inconsistent processing of morphological information, as well as to difficulties inhibiting the inverse interpretation of the sentence. Studies on bilingual aphasia may contribute to our understanding of these issues by shedding light on ...
