Synopsis: 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.

Language Notes: Text: English, Russian
