Title:
Russian and Soviet loanwords and calques in the Czech lexicon since the beginning of the twentieth century
Authors:
Dickins, Tom
Abstract:
This article evaluates Russian and Soviet lexical influences on Czech after 1900, with particular reference to the linguistic legacy of the Great War, the Russian Revolution and Communist rule. The author considers in detail the semantic, stylistic and functional range of the loanwords and calques, from a diachronic and a synchronic perspective. His analysis of the current status of borrowings is supported by empirical data both from the Czech National Corpus and from his own study into people's perceptions and knowledge of well established Russianisms.
