(p.143) Chapter 5 Post-Soviet Russian-Speaking Diaspora in Italy
The Russian Language Outside the Nation

Monica Perotto

Edinburgh University Press

The chapter relates to Russian-speaking emigrants and Russian-Italian bilingual families living in Italy. Based on an extensive fieldwork data it discusses the levels of language maintenance and attrition in these groups. In addition, the chapter provides a detailed analysis of Russian-Italian code-mixing and code-switching. Finally, it develops David Layton’s notion the Russian-speaking community abroad presents a ‘conglomerate’ which stands for a global and transnational network with the Russian language as a lingua franca.

Keywords:   Russian language, migrants, Italy, diaspora, bilingualism, code mixing, code switching
