Professor Townsend's book will be of interest not only to Bohemists, but also to students of Slavic linguistics and to sociolinguists, since spoken and written Czech are radically different and present an unusually interesting case of diglossia. The description of spoken Czech offered here stems first and foremost from detailed study of the speech of a large number of Prague...

A Grammar of Macedonian is the first comprehensive reference grammar to this language couched in the framework of generative grammar. The author has ensured cross-framework accessibility of the data by the constrained use of technical terminology and frequent reference to non-generative grammars of Macedonian, in particular to the works of Blaže Koneski and Zuzanna Topolinjska. The volume focuses on the...

The principal idea behind this book is that lexis and grammar make up a single coherent structure. It is shown that the grammatical patterns of the different classes of Russian nominals are closely interconnected. They can be described as reflecting a limited set of semantic distinctions which are also rooted in the lexical-semantic classification of Russian nouns. The presentation focuses...

Chapter I examines the neuter, which is the rarest of the three Russian genders, paradigmatically and syntagmatically. Moreover, its rate of decline is accelerating. The neuter's productive base is shown to be very narrow and highly syncretic. Historically it has followed a "bust-boom-bust" cycle which appears to be crucial to its predominant function as a stylistically and semantically specialized category....

Because this book contains not only the grammatical material, but also readings and a detailed glossary for them, with full cross-referencing, it makes a complete introductory course in OCS. All paradigms and reading selections (except the Freising texts) are in the Cyrillic alphabet, and the entire book makes liberal use of bold face, italics, etc. The 75-page Glossary lists every...

The study of complementation and complementizers has been an area of great interest for syntactic theory in recent years. This book presents a description of complementation in Bulgarian, with particular emphasis on questions and relative clauses (the so-called WH constructions) and their interaction with the set of clause-introducing words known as complementizers. WH constructions and clauses containing complementizers have been...

Based on original research in Russian syntax, this book explores the intersection of sentence intonation, syntactic structure, and grammatical function in the case of the adverbial participle (deeprichastie) of contemporary Russian. An adverbial participle clause constituting an intonational unit separate from that of its matrix clause is detached (obosoblennyi). The core of the book documents in detail a range of...
