yeah - really wierd word. I think the experiment with alienation, estrangement etc engendered words like ostranenie, but "otchuzhdenie" is the one we use now. the same meaning "chuzhbina" has nearly same meaning as "[zhuzhaya] storona". 'o' functions as 'e' in "estrangement". The root 'str' is common for all indo-european languages.
