Quotation Thielemann, Nadine, Richter, Nicole, Hrsg. 2019. Urban Voices: Studies in the Sociolinguistics, Grammar and Pragmatics of Spoken Russian" Frankfurt/Main: Peter Lang.




The volume Urban Voices presents studies, which analyse how speakers of Russian convey social meanings across a variety of speech situations. Rooted in different methodological frameworks including quantitative and qualitative approaches, the contributions show how various linguistic, paralinguistic and pragmatic means relate to sociolinguistic dimensions (e.g. display the social, ethnic, local identity of a speaker, the institutional character of a communicative situation etc.). The analyses are the results of the research network Urban Voices, which focuses the sociolinguistics, grammar and pragmatics of spoken Russian and investigates its linguistic and communicative diversity. The contributors are Olga Blinova, Nina Bodganova-Beglarian, Beatrix Kreß, Lenore Grenoble, Peter Kosta, Elena Markasova, Ludger Paschen, Nicole Richter, Christian Sappok, Tatiana Sherstinova and Nadine Thielemann.
