Case in Slavic was the third and final monumental collection of articles on Slavic morphosyntax published by Slavica. This is more overtly theoretical than the earlier volumes, albeit reflecting a democratic range of theories. Exploring these three anthologies along with the quinquennial volumes of American Contributions to the International Congress of Slavists, not coincidentally also published by Slavica since 1978,...

Issues in Russian Morphosyntax was the second of Slavica’s three noteworthy collections of articles on Slavic syntax.  In his introduction to this reissue, Slavica director George Fowler writes that this title contains a number of rich articles that were essential in the formation of his morphosyntactic mirovozrenie.

Morphosyntax in Slavic was the first of three major collections of articles on Slavic morphosyntax which helped define the research agendas of Slavic linguists during the period when syntactic theory was becoming more highly constrained and therefore more complex than it had been during the first two decades of Chomskyan theory. Even today they are splendid examples of linguistic argumentation...

Agreement in Contemporary Standard Russian was a tremendous book for its time. It provides a host of sensible descriptive generalizations about difficult cases of agreement for gender and number, and the statistical surveys that have been published in Russia and the Soviet Union in more recent years generally confirm the validity of Crockett’s earlier, more intuitive generalizations.

Recent Advances in the Reconstruction of Common Slavic (1971–1982) continues the work of the original Common Slavic: Progress and Problems in its Reconstruction in annotating the literature on comparative/historical Slavic linguistics. Although the literature goes back over 40 years, much of it is still au courant, and the commentaries are incisive and helpful even to the 21st-­‐‑century reader. No further...

Common Slavic: Progress and Problems in its Reconstruction is an extraordinarily valuable annotated literature review. It is dated only in the sense that the literature surveyed is now fifty years older. There is nothing dated about the commentary on the literature, and given the relatively moderated pace of progress in historical Slavic linguistics in this era of intense focus on...

This book provides some of the fruits of a career teaching Slavic linguistics and phonological theory. Bill Darden was trained in both Prague-School linguistics and generative phonology, and integrates both in his work. He was among the early proponents of the relevance of phonemics and the distinction between morphophonology and phonology in generative phonology. He uses his knowledge of Slavic history to...
