Newspaper Russian: A Vocabulary of Administrative and Commercial Idiom (Paperback)

Usually despatched within 2 weeks.


This handbook, like its sister volumes in this series, is intended to fill a significant gap in the range of dictionaries available today. It is an up-to-date guide to the language and idiom of contemporary Russian as found in the press and media. In recent years, the Russian media has undergone huge transformations as the style and content of newspapers and magazines has changed beyond all recognition. Newspaper Russian takes account of the newly widened political vocabulary and an economic vocabulary largely adapted from English, while also demonstrating how 'newspaper' Russian uses many words in senses distinct from ordinary usage. Short examples are given for each word or phrase, with English translations of head-words and unusual idioms in context. A list of common abbreviations and acronyms is also supplied.
