Do you need a list of English words of Russian origin? Languages borrow words from each other all the time, and still do today. Let's look at some English words that have Russian roots and at the country and language of Russia.
Not very many English words have been taken from Russian as they have from other languages. Yet after Russia became a world power, more Russian words made their way into other languages, including English.
Here are a few words of Russian origin that you may have encountered:
Russia is the largest country in the world taking up one-ninth of the total land area. It spreads over nine time zones and has many different types of weather and land forms. According to population, it also ranks ninth in the world. It has the largest forest reserves and holds one-fourth of the world's fresh water.
As far as seasons go, Russia is the coldest country in the world. Winter usually lasts four or five months, but in the north, it can last as long as 10 months. This is why so many Russians wear fur hats that cover their ears. Summers, on the other hand, are warm and sunny.
Russia is certainly a fascinating country that has lent interesting words to the English language.
