Ruglish - Рунглийский язык

Since 1999 I have to use English a lot as I immigrated to US. But my native language is Russian.

I like to speak about English. For instance, to be less scared of English I constantly seek for some similarity between English and Russian, e.g. sister - сестра; son = сын... I will put more examples later.

First of all, let's take a look at the definition from Wikipedia:     Ruglish :

Runglish, Ruglish or Russlish (Russian: Рунглийский язык), is a neologism increasingly used to denote at least three different interferences of Russian and English languages: pidgin, spoken manner, and informal latinizations of the Cyrillic alphabet.

Here is another one from URBAN dictionary:  Ruglish :

When Russian immigrants speak a mix of Russian in English making no conversation understandable to a pure russian or an American.
   Nu, hows Jobota
  Dude I'm american If you want to ask me how my job is stop speaking ruglish
