Anna Loshchikhina Everyone knows that Russian has been borrowing foreign words. But the fact that Russian has enriched other languages is less known. Scientists from the Institute of Linguistics of the Russian Academy of Sciences have come to a rather unusual conclusion: the growing global influence of English is based on the power of American science, while the Russian language today has a different trump card - everyday life. “I would say that over the past twenty years, the Russian language has easily leaped into the world and, paradoxically enough, its geography has expanded rather than shrunk,"...
