LANGUAGES OF THE FORMER SOVIET REPUBLICS: Their History & Development
by Gary C. Fouse
The Languages of the Former Soviet Republics describes the evolution of each of the languages of the 14 non-Russian Soviet republics paying particular attention to periods of Russification during the Tsarist and Soviet eras. Non-linguistic in content, Gary C. Fouse delves into languages that other authors frequently overlook or ignore, and documents first hand accounts of native-speakers who describe their experiences growing up in a bilingual environment. Targeted toward those interested in the former Soviet Union or language in general, this book will be a tremendous resource for professors and students of Socio-linguistics and Soviet Studies.
