Irina S. Karabulatova, Zinaida V. Polivara


The article discusses the specifics of the conservation and transformation of linguistic and socio-cultural norms of the Ukrainian bilinguals living in the Tyumen region, Khanty-Mansi and Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous districts. Today Ukrainians become the object of attention of many members of the scientific knowledge, because there is a real question: how is the differentiation between Russia and Ukraine developed? Tyumen data are presented in comparison with the results of the author's survey of Ukrainians from Poltava and Lvov. Ukrainians take second or third place in number in the Tyumen region, including the district. Migration of peoples on the territory of the North Tyumen, changing of the usual practice, language behavior leads to the extinction of many features of national culture, language, and then to complete his disappearance, but relict features are stored in the form of ethnically motivated intonation and behavioral norms. Our observations show the growing phenomena of mixing of pronunciation norms both in Russian and in Ukrainian speech of Ukrainian bilinguals of North Tyumen, and, also the growing phenomena of socio-cultural conglomeration due to internal ethnic installations. The study of Russian-Ukrainian cooperation in the Tyumen region allows to determine the level of influence of extralinguistic factors on the state of the Ukrainian language and culture in the Diaspora environment.
