    soc-realism

    Is "soc-realism" or "socrealism" an English word (meaning socialist realism)? Google has some results seemingly confirming that, but it's difficult to say whether it's native writing or not. If it is used in native English, how is it pronounced?

    Re: soc-realism

    Hi,

    Socialist realism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Socialist Realism (art) -- Britannica Online Encyclopedia

    As you can see, none of the articles speak of soc-realism, but refer to it by its full name (note that I don't have access to the full Encylopaedia Britannica article)

    Re: soc-realism

    I've never seen the word before. Maybe some arty people use it, but it would be considered jargon if they do.

    As a rule English doesn't really do Soviet-era Russian jargon.

    Re: soc-realism

    I've never seen or heard it. I'd pronounce it with a slight pause after soc- rather than as a single word.
