The Čakavian dialects are known for their complex prosodic systems and have long been recognized as an important source of information for the historical reconstruction of Common Slavic accentuation. The study of the interactions of tone, quantity, and stress in the phonology and morphology of these dialects can also shed light on the evolution and behavior of pitch accent systems...

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,...

Nikolay Leskov, a contemporary of Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky, has remained largely unknown in the West. A master storyteller and connoisseur of language, Leskov drew on his provincial background and extensive travels throughout the empire as a businessman to depict a Russia quite different from that of his aristocratic peers, earning him the reputation of the most Russian of Russian writers....

One hundred fifty years after his birth, Anton Chekhov remains the most beloved Russian playwright in his own country, and in the English-speaking world he is second only to Shakespeare. His stories, deceptively simple, continue to serve as models for writers in many languages. In this volume, Carol Apollonio and Angela Brintlinger have brought together leading scholars from Russia and...

No major Russian author has been more thoroughly translated into American culture than the master of the short story, playwright, and socially committed physician Anton Chekhov (1860–1904). Chekhov’s writings and his person have had an exceptionally strong hold on the American imagination since the first British translations of his work crossed the Atlantic in the early twentieth century. Many distinguished...

This monograph offers a comprehensive treatment of the evolution of an important part of Common Slavic morphology from Indo-European. It argues that shortly before the earliest written attestations, Slavic nominal declension underwent a massive morphological restructuring, which has been neglected, or only partially glimpsed, by scholars in the field. Several problematic items in this field may be explained as the...

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...
