This book is a sociolinguistic examination of the Russian speech of the American “Third Wave”, the migration from the Soviet Union which began in the early 1970s under the policy of détente. Within the framework of bilingualism and language contact studies, it examines developments in emigré Russian with reference to the late Cold-War period which shaped them and the post-Soviet era of today. The book addresses matters of interest not only to Russianists, but to linguists of various theoretical persuasions and to sociologists, anthropologists and cultural historians working on a range of related topics. No knowledge of the Russian language is assumed on the part of the reader, and all linguistics examples are presented in standard transliteration and fully explicated.

“The book is well written and richly exemplified. No knowledge of Russian is assumed on the part of the reader: all linguistic examples are presented in standard transliteration, with English glosses, and fully explicated. The issues addressed in the study are of interest not only to Slavic linguists, Russianists and the scholars of bilingualism but also to linguists, sociologists, anthropologists and cultural historians.



“This well-written book provides a good overview of the language of recent-speaking immigrants to the United States that should be easily accessible to nonlinguists. Although of primary interest to Russian linguists and sociolinguists, the broad coverage of the topic also makes it goo reading for anthropologists, sociologists, and historians. []This book is a welcome addition to the growing body of case studies on the sociolinguistics of language contact. Through language, this work provides the reader with an excellent introduction into the everyday life, culture, and thinking of new Russian Americans.
