`The Russian Language in the Twentieth Century is a book that will
appeal to a broad readership, since it adeptly addresses both
scholarly and practical concerns. In addition to its obvious appeal
for linguists, the update on current language usage will be of
interest to both native and non-native speakers, Since the book
addresses many questions that arise in language classes, it will
also be a valuable reference for language teachers.'
