Book (PhD study) announcement:
 	
Larisa Leisioe
Morphosyntactic Convergence and Integration in Finland Russian 
(Acta Universitatis Tamperensis 795), University of Tampere. 
ISBN 951-44-5028-0
Electronic mode: http://acta.uta.fi/english
Key words: Language contact, genitive, word order, past participle,
 grammatical gender, Northern Russian dialects, 
 conversation analysis.
 	
The data are tape-recorded informal research interviews with Finland
Russian speakers. The informants are those Finland Russians whose
ancestors came to Finland between the 1700s and the 1920s. Part of
them speaks a Northern Russian dialect.

The structures under study are: (copula + )past participle used as
predicate, Finnish-partitive-like use of the genitive of the subject
and object, the word order in the noun phrase with the genitive of
personal possessor, and gender assignment to the Finnish and Swedish
nouns in the Russian context. The data analysis is preceded by an
overview of the historical development of particular structures and
the analysis of their use in Finnish, Swedish and standard and
non-standard Russian. In the data analysis the context of use of a
particular construction is taken into account.
