Description
Summary:"This handbook fills a significant gap in the range of dictionaries available today. 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 headwords and unusual idioms in context. A list of common abbreviations and acronyms is also supplied. This vocabulary will be a useful tool and reference manual for students, journalists, business people and general readers who need to use contemporary 'newspaper' Russian." --Book Jacket.
