The peculiarities of the language of russian germans (a case study of fairy tales by N. Wacker)

DOI 10.51955/2312-1327_2023_3_213

Vera B. Merkuryeva

Abstract. In the article, using the examples from Nellie Wacker’s fairy tales, which were published by a Kazakh publishing house in 1995, when the author was already living in Cologne (Germany), the originality of the language of Russian Germans is demonstrated. The article represents a certain contribution to the development of linguopersonology. The bilingual author consciously, and sometimes unconsciously, includes examples from the field of grammar, vocabulary, semantics and stylistics in the texts of fairy tales. All of them arose as a result of the contact of the two languages: German and Russian, as well as the processes of interference, and the consequences of the influence of the Russian language on the German one. All examples are confirmed by native German speakers and are clear evidence of the artistic bilingualism of Russian Germans.

Keywords: language contacts, bilingualism, literary bilingualism, bilingual literary text, interfering influence, Russianisms, fairy tale.

The role of multilingual environment in second-language acquisition

DOI 10.51955/23121327_2022_2_167

Ekaterina Yu. Fatyushina

Abstract. The article deals with the speech activity of artificial bilingual individuals depending on the environment (monolingual or multilingual) in which a new language has been studied. According to the hypothesis, a person mastering a new language in a group, where some students have already been bilingual by the time of learning, demonstrates more readiness to switch the language code and a richer range of functions when using this language compared to those who have acquired it in a monolingual group. The results of the survey showed that the willingness to code switching didn’t correlate significantly with the environment of learning a foreign language. Another part of the hypothesis was confirmed – those who have studied a new language in a multilingual environment more often use it as an instrument of social interaction and a means of expressing attitudes. Bilingual individuals who have learned a new language in a monolingual environment are more likely to use it only for exchanging information and expressing thoughts.

Keywords: monolingual individual, bilingual individual, multilingual individual, monolingual environment (group), multilingual environment (group), code switching.
