Annotation

The growing exposure of local languages, including Russian, to global English generates a number of contact-induced linguistic features; one of them is the intensification of metalinguistic reflection by speakers on the subject matter of language contact. This article deals with various aspects of extensive current metalinguistic research, examines the reasons for studying meta-contact linguistics as a separate branch of metalinguistics, defines and classifies different types of lay metalingual commentaries about language contact. It also outlines some of the major directions for future research in meta-contact linguistics, in particular, within the context of the globalization of English research.

        Key words: metalanguage, metalinguistic/metalingual reflexivity, Englishization/Anglicization, folk language contact reflection, folk contact linguistics / meta-contact linguistics.
