RUSSIA : RuNet Glossary; 10 Must Know Slang Words.


     This blog's editor loves languages...and struggles along in 7...if high school Latin is included.
      But new languages are like salty chips...can't stop eating them!
     So...DVD movies are often viewed with subtitled languages on...if available. 
     Korean and Russian are the present favorites.
     For those also linguistically interested...this link has a glossary of 10 must know slang words used on Russia's internet.
    Example...Ботокс/ botox...a Putin nickname because of his alleged use of the popular poison to appear younger.
     And: Айфончик/ iPhonchik...a nickname for PM Dmitri Medvedev...who loves new high tech gadgets.
