Russian Language Speakers: Some Observations on their Communicative Behavior

Andrei Shatilov


The paper presents the description of specific communicative practice among the Russian language speakers. This research is based on linguistic and cultural data collected in everyday speech and behavior, as well as in the Russian philosophical and literary tradition. The following elements of verbal communication were analyzed: syntactic structures, lexical units, and phonetics. Sociocultural phenomena, such as role-switching, use of background knowledge, and talk domination were observed too. Generally, the method applied here could be defined as content analysis. The findings of the present study suggest that the typical features of the communicative style in the Russian culture are straightforwardness, familiarity, gender and race intolerance, aggressiveness, rude language, irony, and emotionality
