A brief introduction to the Russian language
Russian is an East Slavic language belonging to the Indo-European language family. Historically, the development of the Russian language can be divided into the following periods, the Kievan period, feudal break-up, the Moscovite period, Empire, the Soviet era and the present day.
In the year 1000, there were a number of very similar dialects. Later, in the Kievan period, once a certain political unification was achieved, Greek Byzantine calques and loanwords were introduced. Furthermore, the literary language changed and started to assimilate itself to Eastern Slavic.
When in 1100, the feudal break-up, put an end to the Kievan polity, the differences in dialectology became evident. Peter the Great, in an effort to westernise his empire, introduced various reform policies, as well as a reform of the alphabet, and secularisation.
In 1918, due to political unrest as well as radical changes, Russian adopted its current appearance, due to an orthography reform.
Russian has around 164 million native-speakers. Russian is the official language of Russia and a co-official language in Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, as well as in the unrecognized country of Transnistria. Furthermore there are large Russian-speaking communities in the Ukraine, Estonia and Lithuania. Russian is also one of the 6 official UNO languages.
The modern Cyrillic alphabet, which is used in Russian, contains 33 letters. In terms of spelling, Russian corresponds more or less, to the articulation of its phonemes; therefore there are some inconsistencies, which is common amongst modern languages. Modern-day Russian spelling is based on the reform of 1918 as well as the final codification in 1956.
In the 17th and 18th century, Russian punctuation underwent changes, because of French and German influences. Russian punctuation is essentially based on the Greek Byzantine model.
The language’s morphology is highly flectual and the syntax derived from the vernacular and Western European styles, and it has become the Orthodox Church’s liturgical language.
Literary Russian has considerably influenced spoken Russian, although the vernacular has retained some characteristic forms.
