The Russian portion of the
following audio segments has been recorded by two different women, Olga
and Lyudmila. Russia is a large country, and Olga and Lyudmila live
almost at opposite ends of Russia. Both speak Russian, but their
dialect and accent are different. Listen carefully and see if you

common among the foreign born in Nevada in the 19th and early 20th centuries.
In fact, differences are found among many who speak a language other than
English in Nevada today.
