Focuses on various types of nonstandard Russian, such as criminal argot, youth slang, army jargon, and general popular Russian. Davie has updated the 1993 edition, which stemmed largely from the "UFO's" experiences in the Soviet army, Soviet youth subculture, and the Soviet prison system. Many terms are defined and also used in context. Among the slang terms: somebody who gets drunk on cheap substitutes for alcohol; prisoner transferred from prison camp to do construction work; and high on intravenous drugs. Russian to English only. No pronunciation. Distributed by ISBS. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

This dictionary of slang is used by many Russian groups and sub-cultures: hippie, punk, gang, criminal, youth and student speech. It first appeared in 1993. This edition is updated and edited for the British user. There are full translations of all the examples of each entry. The book aims to bridge colloquial speech and the language of the modern novel and magazine. It should be of interest to linguists, to students of Russian and to readers of contemporary literature.
