Curt Woolhiser:”Belarusian Russian”: Sociolinguistic Status and Discursive Representations

While Russian is the dominant language in most spheres of both formal and informal communication, there are signst hat the form of Russian spoken in Belarus, primarily under the influence of the Belarusian linguistic substratum, is diverging from the norms of the dominant Russian standard of the Russian Federation.
