Russian – basic information

  • Russian is an East Slavic language. It is written in the Cyrillic script, which was created in the late 9th century and was based on the Greek alphabet. Russian is a descendant of the Old East Slavic language (its ancestor was Old Church Slavonic), which in the 14th century also gave rise to Ukrainian and Belarusian.
  • Unlike many other contemporary languages, Russian is a relatively homogenous language due to the centralization policy and forced migrations from rural to urban areas in the 20th century. There are two major groups of regional varieties: the northern dialects and the southern dialects.
  • Russian is regulated by the Russian Language Institute at the Russian Academy of Sciences.
  • The Russian language holds official status in many international institutions and organizations, including the UN, Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, the International Criminal Court, the Eurasian Economic Union, and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization.

Interesting facts

  • There are quite a few Russian loanwords in English, some of which are not identified as alien. Examples include mammoth (from the Russian ма́монт – mamont), sable (sobol – со́боль), pogrom (погро́м - the word made its way into English through Yiddish) or vodka (во́дка).
  • Russian has variable stress, which can be distinctive sometimes. For example, the sentence Я плачу (ja plachU) means „I’m paying” while Я плáчу (ja plAchu) means „I’m crying”.
  • In Russian there are two words for the blue color: синий (seeniy) – dark blue and голубой (goluboy) – light blue. For this reason, as research has shown, Russians are better at discriminating shades of blue than English native speakers.
  • достопримечательности (dostoprimechatel'nosti) is one of the most difficult words to pronounce. Its meaning is “tourist attractions”.
