  • Second Language Acquisition
  • Russian as a Second Language


My research project “Learning Russian as a second language through allusive (precedential) phrases: corpus-based study” focuses on the phenomena of so-called precedential texts (прецедентный текст; [pretsedentnyi tekst]) and precedential phrases in Russian language. This conception was introduced by the linguist Yu.N. Karaulov in 1987, and since then it has become a prominent part in Russian linguistics. The term “precedential text” usually refers to such texts that that native speakers refer to or re-use in their speech as they consider it significant and valuable for their culture. The most famous and widely used expressions from such texts are precedential phrases. However, the theory of precedential texts does not have clear equivalents or analogues in other European studies on language. In my research the term “allusive expressions/phrases” will be used for expressions of speakers which refer to precedential texts. The perception of allusive phrases includes not only the understating of its literal meaning, but (and that is priority) the knowledge of extralinguistic aspects behind them. So, language learners may (and they usually do) face difficulties when they meet allusive phrases in real speech. So, the main objective of my research is to examine the effectivity of learning Russian as a second language by building and using a corpus of examples of allusive (precedential) phrases.
