Explanatory dictionary

“There is no word which could be so great, glib, which could burst from the bottom of the heart, could be so boiling and vividly thrilling, but an accurate pronounced Russian word”.

What is said by Gogol can be completely attributed to such phenomenon in the Russian language as the foul language. The words by professor I.A.Boduen-de-Courtene (the editor of the 3-d edition of the explanatory dictionary by V.I.Dal) that if a word (including a foul word) is presented in the language, it must be included into the dictionary and the way it is used depends on the human culture, has become the stimulus to prepare CD-Dictionary “Russian Foul Language” . The dictionary contains various examples (phrases, locutions, chastushkas, anecdotes, quotations, jokes) as well as explanations and history of the origin of some non-standard words.

Besides explanations the dictionary contains the expanded examples of the foul language (slang) employment from the books as well as oral speech, chastushkas, jokes, anecdotes, sayings, etc. The ethimology of some words and expressions with the reference to the dictionaries and primary sources. Of course, to describe completely such a phenomenon as the Russian foul language in one dictionary is practically impossible, still the Publishing House considers this dictionary to be useful especially for the persons who learns the Russian.

The Publishing House will be grateful for any notes, additions and corrections.

CD-Dictionaries are very useful, because they practically immediately allow us to find a necessary word or expression. The search can be performed as according to ABC list, as well as by spelling of a necessary word or word expression.

The fragments of the text you can take through windows exchange buffer to other programs.
