20. In the second chapter of the Russian Sociolinguistic Workbook, we defined common jargon as a system of social and professional jargon vocabulary and phraseology that due to frequent and common use in mass media and everyday communication became a part of the Russian language used by the majority of native speakers. Do you have an analogical phenomenon in your language? How important is it to know common jargon to be an effective communicator among native speakers of your language?

21. In the Russian Workbooks we suggested 5 categories of exercises: extraction, substitution, mimicking, complication exercises, and interpretation exercises. These categories reflect students’ progress from the passive skills of identifying recognizing a studied phenomenon in communication, to analyzing its structure and repeating it following an example to active skills of using it independently in communication and being able to interpret it. For each category, we suggest several possible examples of exercises on the basis of which each teacher can develop her/his own system adapted to a specific teaching/learning situation. The number of exercises necessary for mastering a studied phenomenon should also be identified by a teacher.

Identification exercises:

  • Identify referenced facts for allusions given below

  • Identify allusions in the extract given below.

Substitution exercises:

  • Choose the correct meaning of the allusion.

  • Correlate allusions with its taxonomy class

Imitation exercises:
