520    Bernard Comrie and Gerald Stone's The Russian Language 
       Since the Revolution (OUP, 1978) provided a comprehensive 
       account of the way Russian changed in the period between 
       1917 and the 1970s. In this new volume the authors, joined
       by Maria Polinsky, extend the time frame back to 1900 and 
       forward to glasnost in the mid-1980s. They first consider 
       changes in the pronunciation, morphology, syntax, and 
       vocabulary of the language and then examine the effects of
       social change on the language in chapters on the changing 
       status of women, modes of address, speech etiquette, and 
       orthography. They show that changes in all these areas 
       have been substantial, and explore the extent to which the
       standard language, as portrayed in dictionaries and 
       grammars, coincides with the actual usage - both spoken 
       and written - of educated Russians. The book will be of 
       interest not only to students of Russian but more 
       generally to sociolinguists and those with an interest in 
       language change.
