The Russian Language

Russian – formerly known as Great Russian – is the most frequently spoken Slavic language. There are roughly 180 million native speakers of Russian, most of whom live in Russia.

Russian has become a significant language on the global political stage in light of the Russian Empire, the Cold War, the Soviet Union and the USSR/Russia’s various space missions, not to mention the sheer size of the country itself. For instance, Alaska was given its name when it was part of the Russian Empire, before being sold to the USA in 1867.

Russian belongs to the eastern Slavic language group, alongside Ukrainian, Belarusian and Ruthenian.

Russian is an official language in Russia, Belarus (along with Belarusian), Kazakhstan (along with Kazakh) and the Republic of Crimea (which belongs to the Ukraine), alongside Ukrainian. In these countries and others of the former Soviet Union (i.e. Latvia and Estonia), Russian is the mother tongue of a percentage of the population and an important element of public life.

Particularities of Russian

Russian uses the Cyrillic alphabet and is highly inflective, as are most Slavic languages. Russian contains three grammatical genders, divided into animate (i.e. people) and inanimate (i.e. other) substantives.

The Russian equivalent of the verb “to be” is only conjugated in the past and future tenses. Exceptions aside, this verb is just not used in the present tense. Therefore, there are almost no copulas in Russian today (i.e. ‘I am tall’).

The increasing significance of Russian in global markets is demonstrated through the demand for translators and interpreters of Russian. Further education institutions in Germany have already been offering Russian translation and interpreting degree courses for some years.
