Vavka, phantom-shops and given - Yandex knows what cities they are in

    We all periodically go on business trips or on vacations and bring “words” and phrases from other cities.

    Yandex conducted a study of queries from different regions of Russia and highlighted words and phrases that are not directly related to geography. Rather, they reflect everyday life and belong to the spoken language.

    A few examples.
    Far East: “Vavka” - a wound or abscess.
    Siberia: “goat” - funny pictures and stories,
    Volga region: “phantom” - stereo images (Nizhny Novgorod)
