Language on Display: Writers, Fiction and Linguistic Culture in Post-Soviet Russia

Ingunn Lunde


This volume spans a number of theoretical fields including language variation, language policy and literary stylistics and provides a coherent way of triangulating these fields by the introduction and elaboration of the notion of performative metalanguage. This volume as a whole offers insight into the role of writers in the broader social and political context of language culture in contemporary Russia and into the various ways in which the linguistic and aesthetic practices of literary art can engage in questions related to the negotiation of linguistic norms.

Keywords: metalanguage, sociolinguistics, contemporary Russian prose, language debate, language culture, linguistic variation, linguistic ideologies, language policy
