On behalf of the editorial team of the Russian Language Journal, it is with great pleasure that we present Volume 73, Number 1. This issue, available exclusively online, features six articles and two book reviews that span a broad spectrum of topics within Russian language studies. The issue opens with Nadezhda Braun's exploration of how Russian minority languages are minimized through Russian educational policies. Sofya Yunusova investigates the educational potential of literary texts in eliciting affective responses in the language-literature classroom. Joan A. Chevalier's study explores the semantic value of connecting phrases and conjunctions, providing insights into the linguistic characteristics of Russian "vvodnye slova" through a systematic corpora study and its implications for Russian (L2) pedagogy.
