TitleLanguage Situation in Russia Today with Special Reference to New Russian Dictionaries
AbstractThe article is devoted to the general review of modern language situation in Russia as reflected in recently published dictionaries of Russian language. Main trends in current Russian lexicography are distinguished through criticism of new types of dictionaries of literary language with special reference to three editions of "An Explanatory Dictionary of the Modern Russian Language" edited by G.N. Sklyarevskaya (Moscow, 1998, 2001, 2005). Language modifications of the end of the XXth century (i.e. terms of various subject areas: computers, sport, business and finance, abbreviations, jargon, youth slang, etc.) registered in their macrostructure are being analysed. Special attention is given to the entries showing the latest changes in Russian society (politics, army and order, religion and faith, etc.), borrowings and new words defining meals, drinks, clothes, music. Current developments and perspectives in progress are mentioned..
