Abstract or Introduction

This study delves into the realm of Russian English, a variety that has gained recognition with the rise of global communication. Focusing on a small set of YouTube videos, the research examines a specific linguistic feature: the irregular use of articles. Considering the historical context of Russian-English language contact, the study explores the current state of English in Russia and the linguistic features that make Russian English unique. The analysis includes a comparison of article use in Standard English and Russian English, aiming to identify tendencies and differences among speakers in Russia and Russian emigrants in the US. By utilizing YouTube as a platform for real data collection, the study contributes to the growing understanding of Russian English as a distinct and evolving variety in the world of World Englishes.
