Summary/Abstract: Toward the end of the 17th and in the early 18th centuries, under the rule of Peter I, the character of the Russian state began to change radically. In a revolutionary fashion, the changes first and foremost affected Russia´s social and economic life. The country´s linguistic situation also reflected these social changes. The reign of Peter I is considered an important milestone in the history of Russia and for Russian. Is was the turning point between old and new Russian. This paper analyses these changes in the language developed during the so-called ”Peter the Great´s era”.
