This reader for intermediate-advanced students is drawn from the "juicy" material of tabloid journalism; subjects range from the incredible and ridiculous to the horrendous and outrageous. The language is highly provocative, peppered with social stereotypes, and frequently characterized by "tongue-in-cheek" understatement. It abounds in quips and expressions which are representative of the everyday banter of relaxed conversation. Students of Russian...

This innovative suite of instructional material for advanced students of Russian is aimed at fostering their transition from slow, controlled speech to native-like fluency. The driving methodology is lexicalist-oriented, implying an emphasis on the situated internalization of vocabulary, so that grammar skills develop naturally with the repeated use of particular words and phrases in combination. The textbook centers around authentic...

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.

This study is chiefly concerned with the organization of the Italian Poems into a coherent meaningful structure. It demonstrates how the very order of the poems was determined by a conception of evolution which paralleled that of Blok's total oeuvre. Studied in this way, there emerges from the cycle a pattern charged with meaning and grounded in much larger issues...

One cannot approach Aleksandr Blok's poetry without asking some fundamental questions about the lyric cycle. Why did Blok organize virtually his entire lyric output into cycles? What information (if any) was he able to encode in the cycle that would have been absent otherwise? What need was there for him to create a cyclic construct unprecedented in Russian poetry --...

Several problematic items in this field may be explained as the...

With the collapse of the Soviet Union, Dostoevsky rapidly became the most popular Russian classic. Taking advantage of the freedoms that came with glasnost, Russian scholars have produced...
