Blues Dictionary
This is an English-Russian dictionary of words and expressions found in the blues lyricks. I used the following sources: Clarence Major, “Dictionary of Afro-American Slang” (International Publishers, New York, 1970); Langstone Hughes, “I, Too, Am America” (with comments of R.I. Rosina, "Raduga", Moscow, 1986); Harry’s Blues Lyricks ( I am grateful to the people who, in friendly talks, clarified for me the meaning of many "black English" words - especially to Rattlesnake Annie and Alexander Galkin. Special thanks to Sergei Starostin for encouraging comments.
