Alaskan Russian (Russian: аляскинский русский, alyaskinsky russky) refers to a set of dialects of the Russian language that is predominantly spoken within Alaska and neighboring parts of North America. The Alaskan dialects have been heavily influenced by Aleut, English, Spanish, and several additional languages spoken by Alaska Natives and Immigrants.

Phonology

The most recognizable features of the Alaskan Russian dialects include:

  • The separation distinction of the the vowels /a/ and /o/ when unstressed (okanye).
Example
  • Хорошая собака пьёт воду. (The good dog drinks water.)
    • Standard Russian = /xaroshaya sabaka pyot vadu/
    • Alaskan Russian = /horoshaya sobaka pyot wodu/
