What components of SLC are relevant for your language?

15. In the Russian Sociolinguistic Workbook, for practical mastery we chose two components of SLC: functional styles and genres of the Russian literary (standard) language and common jargon of the Russian language. Are these components important for developing/improving SLC in your language? If-not, what components would you include in your course for practical mastery?

16. In the first chapter of the Russian Sociolinguistic Workbook, we defined the functional style of the Russian language as a combination of language elements that serves a specific sphere of life and that is established as a result of the historical development of the literary language. Is this definition relevant for your language?

17. In the first chapter of the Russian Sociolinguistic Workbook, we introduced the following classification of functional styles in the Russian language:

  • Publicistic

  • Scientific

  • Official

  • Conversational

  • Belles-Letters

Is this classification relevant for your language? If-not, what classification of functional styles do you have in your language?

18. Within Russian publicistic style, we differentiated the following genres:

Informative: news article, interview, commentary, report, survey, press release. Analytical: analytical report, analytical article, analytical interview, analytical commentary, monitoring, rating, analytical survey, journalist investigation, forecast. Feature publicistic: feature article, satirical article, lampoon

Do these genres exist in your language? What publicistic genres are important for improving SLC in your language?

19. Within scientific style, we differentiated the following genres:

Scientific: monograph, research article, dissertation, dissertation summary.

Educational: textbook, (student why?) dictionary, teacher manual, student manual.
