The Russian dialects of the Odessa district merit particular attention due to the fact that for over 200 years they had been isolated from the bulk of the South Russian languages, being in close contact with Ukrainian, Moldavian and Bulgarian dialects. Russian and Bulgarian dialects have often held neighbouring relations but the Bulgarian loanwords in Russian dialects have scarcely been studied. Therefore, it might be of scientific interest to draw attention to some agricultural and everyday-life realia, which have been borrowed from neighbouring Bulgarian dialects. The reasons which stimulated the infiltration of the lexemes under discussion are analysed along with the phonetic-morphological and semantic characteristics of their assimilation. Their spheres of usage and distribution rates are established and some peculiarities of theinterrelation between the Bulgarian and Russian words are discussed with regard to that specific system of dialects.
