Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to analyze what words of Russian origin have been borrowed into English and to study their thematic groups and find out whether they have undergone some morphological and semantic changes in English or not. 59 words of Russian origin were selected from Merriam- Webster Online Dictionary and The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language. The use of these words was illustrated by giving examples from different Internet sources. Russian loan words were divided into different groups in accordance with their thematic groups. In addition semantic changes and different derivatives of Russian loan words were analyzed. It was found that many Russian loan words took inflections of English language and some words extended their meanings.
