GET D!RTY

Next time youre traveling or just chattin in Russia with your friends, drop the textbook formality and bust out with expressions they never teach you in school, including:

• Cool slang

• Funny insults

• Explicit sex terms

• Raw swear words

Dirty Russian teaches the casual expressions heard every day on the streets of Russia:

What's up?

kak de-LA?

I really gotta piss.

mnye O-chen NA-do pos-SAT.

Damn, you fine!

blin, nu ti i shi-KAR-nii!

Let's have an orgy.

da-VAI u-STRO-im OR-gi-yu.

This is crappy vodka.

d-ta VOD-ka khre-NO-va-ya.

Let's go get hammered.

poi-DYOM bukh-NYOM.

I'm gonna own you, bitch!

ya te-BYA VI-ye-blyu!

Synopsis:

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.

About the Author

Erin Coyne has held various jobs in Russia including a Peace Corps volunteer and an NGO program director in Ukraine and Armenia. She has spent more nights drinking on the streets of Moscow than she will ever admit to and filling far too much time taking long train trips through Eastern Europe, going to concerts, and hanging out in seedy bars and rock clubs doing "research." She is currently working on a PhD in Slavic Linguistics at UC Berkeley. Erin's husband Igor Fisun is a native of Kiev, Ukraine where he worked for a several years in water bottling factory before quitting his 9-5 to pursue freelance engraving. He currently hangs out in Berkeley bars teaching the clientele how to curse in Russian.
