By education I am a philologist. Working in the field of word creation for many years, I came to the conclusion that the Russian language has turned into a meaningless pile of rules. Children learn them, but do not understand the meaning — why and for whom are all those rules, why you need to write as they do. So growing gap between the modern Russian language and the native speech. This chasm — not a new phenomenon, it increased from century to century. The beginning of its formation can be considered the emergence of Cyrillic, which, in fact, it is a simplified version of the Russian language. New reformers only finally "finished off" him.
Some linguists consider the starting point of separation and the Old Slavonic language primitivization middle of the 1st millennium BC "Simplification" of the Russian language with zeal continued Peter 1. He excluded from the alphabet 5 "excess" letters, with whom disappeared and many of the words that carry some meaning, cut accent marks, which had its own purpose. Then, in 1918, removed 3 more letters. In addition, goods disappeared from the letter "izhitsa." In spelling was also altered.
One of the many consequences of the elimination of "extra" letters was the appearance and disappearance of many homonyms differences between words and mir mir, for example. Now the program "Microsoft Word" defines a writing these words as invalid, and the difference between them is not familiar to any high school graduate. It is surprising that, after a century of Russian wealth writing completely forgotten. Thus, a type of writing, ligature, widely used even after the reforms of Peter the books, posters, menus, and imaginative writing is simplistic, it is unknown to the modern Russian man.
Critics of the reform in 1918, wrote that "reform is no urgent need" and does not believe in the possibility of its implementation. One of the opponents of reform, IA Ilyin said: "Who needs this confusion in thought and language work? The answer can only be: is it all national enemies of Russia. " Poet VI Ivanov likened the new spelling of "worn coin." For a time in Russia is not reform. Thus, Whites, and many writers continued to use the Cyrillic letter, which, again, is a simplified version of the old Russian.
However, over time, the beauty and meaning of their native language, which are so prized classics, and described in his "scientific grammar" M. Lomonosov, almost disappeared from the textbooks. Take for example the word "beauty." We all know that under the current program of the Russian language, the word on the composition is broken down into the root of "red", the suffix "from" and ending "a". When such a review it completely loses its value. As deep as possible, teachers can reach only to the beauty of the analogy — red, immediately making a reservation, the red — the word obsolete, do not read modern, unnecessary. The children absorb information like a sponge … In fact the word "beauty" must understand the composition as follows: a-ra-hundred-a (possible options), where each part has its own importance, and together they form a deeper meaning. Then the word acquires a completely different sound, alive. Today's teachers do not even know this, imagine what level of education they give to our children. However, this is not so much their fault, after all they are — only the victims of "reformers." Or the word "Great" offer to dismantle the composition as follows: first — ending, "great" and "Russian" — the roots of — Comm. vowel, the word "wheel" like this: root "wheels", the end-on, the word "big" as "great" — the root-th ending that is not quite make any sense and does not say anything about the birth of words, the meaning of their roots .
"Educate" children in such a program, teachers have them, at best, the ability to learn, not to think, to draw parallels between the words, learn imagery. Some researchers of Russian claim that before one word could have up to fifty values, and its meaning varies with the writing of the same letter. Take the already mentioned the word "peace." Now it is called a multi-valued — the world as a state of rest, peace, the Globe and so on. In this case, the alien is very difficult to explain what exactly the same in terms of writing the words have different meanings. Before the reforms of Peter the word "peace" has changed with the change of writing the letter "i": mir, mir, and so on. Agree, so much clearer. For whom to "simplify" and "simplify" the Russian language? Is it possible, according to the "reformers," we are so stupefied that they are unable to perceive the living beauty of the Russian language in its original form? Maybe it is. Instead of thoughtful study of his native language we delve into the controversy about the rules, considering all the "before" outdated, unnecessary, archaic. As funny looks "scholar" Jagged fifty rules savvy five-year plan and Wikipedia, and who believes himself a connoisseur of Russian!
Numerous rules of writing? For whom they were created? For the most part, they memorize, because we need, the desire to get a perfect score, and not to be considered illiterate. I can definitely experienced person to say that modern Russia has developed and promoted compliance system senseless rules of the Russian language. The norms are constantly changing the spelling and the meaning is clear only changes their initiators. Why, for example, the prefix un-changed to infinity before voiceless consonants, and the s-on with before voiceless consonants? However, the children cast in modern schools must follow these rules, and their parents do not care what the mindless memorization of the environment of the people is truly ignorant. If the words cease to transmit original meaning, become dead, this is a major fault. According to the meaning of return — that should be decisive in the development of the rules of the Russian language.
Of course, it is necessary to study the modern Russian language, to know it. However, imagine how life would be more intelligent a man who begins to understand the meaning of the words "wedding", "behavior", "mouth", "develop", "say", "education", or at least think about their meaning. Only then will it be possible to compare and contrast not only language systems, and the systems world, social order former and current, to move from the level of "robot" to the level of a creative person.
