This truly fascinating work deals with fundamental theoretical issues regarding the architecture of the grammar, the nature of the Move operation, and the mapping of syntactic structures to morphology and phonology.

A Short Dictionary of 18th-Century Russian is one of several useful philological tools Slavica has published in its fifty years.

The Origins of the Slavs: A Linguist’s View is a deep philological investigation into the identification of the original homeland where the Slavic languages and ethnicities coalesced as distinct from other Indo-European peoples. Zbigniew Gołąb, Professor of Slavic Linguistics at the University of Chicago, surveys a huge range of data and contributes numerous original analytical points of his own.
