Title: The Influence of French on Eighteenth-Century Literary Russian
Subtitle: Semantic and phraseological calques
Written By: May Smith
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/Index.cfm?vLang=E&vSiteID=4&vSiteName=BookDetail%2Ecfm&VID=10288
Description:

This book seeks to establish the degree to which Gallicisms permeated the
Russian language in the eighteenth century. The largest group of borrowings
were the semantic and phraseological calques. In order to examine this
influence, the author has selected scores of examples from the original
works, translations and correspondence of Russian writers from the 1730s to
the end of the century. The calques analysed belong to various registers of
the literary language, from the prose used in essays and correspondence to
the most lyrical form found in poetry and certain translations. This book
concludes that the French influence was overwhelming and fully enhanced the
Russian literary language that was developed during this period.
