Dirty Russian: Everyday Slang from "What's Up?" to "F*%# Off!" - Erin Coyne and Igor Fisun
208 page paperback
Nothing is censored in Dirty Russian. By revealing the contemporary colloquial language locals actually speak, this book presents cool things to say for all casual situations—shopping, parties, nightclubs, sporting events and even romance and sex. Dirty Russian includes harsh expressions to convince a local police officer that your documents are in order and you’ve tipped him enough or sweet words to entice a local beauty into a horse-drawn sleigh ride, and even native banter to help make friends over a glass of vodka. An invaluable guide for off-the-beaten-path travelers going to Russia, Dirty Russian is packed with enough insults and swear words to offend every person in Russia without even mentioning that they lost the Cold War and sex terminology graphic enough to embarrass the hostesses at Moscow’s infamous Rasputin brothel.
