This book is a description of the verbal morphology of the Macedonian literary language. However, unlike analyses which have preceded, it is concerned not only with presentation of the facts, but also with justification of the claims it makes relating to the structure of the assignment of meaning to form, the structure of the conjugational unit, and the grammatical function...

UCLA Slavic Studies no. 8 This interdisciplinary and bilingual collection of critical essays and materials brings together Kuzmin scholars from three countries (the United States, Russia, and Israel) to provide a multi-­‐‑ faceted portrait of Mikhail Kuzmin (1872–1936), a key but underestimated figure of Russian modernism whose artistic output reflects the rich variety of a latter-­‐‑day Renaissance man.

Born into the old noble families of the Nabokovs, the Falz-Feins, the von Korffs, and the Fasolts, Marina Viktorovna grew up in Berlin, where, during World War II, she went to university, was arrested and...


The murdered princes Boris and Gleb enjoy a privileged status in the pantheon of Russian saints. Their vitae are ranked among the masterpieces of medieval Kievan literature. Nonetheless, fundamental questions remain about the circumstances of their life and death, the propagation of their legend and the nature of their veneration. Traditionally, the history of the cult and the texts have...


From the Brown University Slavic Reprint Series: "Mechta i mysl'... has remained in the front rank of Turgenev studies. Gershenzon's work is a luminous and intuitive examination of the relationship between Turgenev's art and his personality, and of the pervading theme that unites Turgenev's work to that of other nineteenth-century Russian writers."

Historians of the Russian revolution have paid little attention to the part played by the Mensheviks in the democracy that governed Russia from February 1917 to Lenin's coup d'etat in October. The only previous monograph on the Mensheviks in 1917 is a polemic published in Moscow which actually focuses on Lenin, and there is no description of the Menshevik party...


Durst-Andersen develops a new conceptual framework for the clarification of the relations between verbal, sentential, and utterance meaning and aspectuality. The book takes up some of the hardest problems of Russian aspect usage, e.g., the usage of aspect in the infinitive, the imperative, and in connection with negation, and demonstrates that they are fully explanable and describable in terms of...

This book is not about “things you always wanted to know about Polish but were afraid to ask,” but rather about “things about Polish you never imagined could be so interesting until Professor Rothstein began to talk about them.”

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...


This study provides a psychological investigation into the mother-son relationship in Russian folk and literary tradition. Beginning with the byliny, it examines the origins of the strong woman figure whose power over her sons results in their regressive behavior and inability to sever the oedipal ties with her. Hence the tales of Dobrynia and the Dragon, Vasilii Buslaev, and Sadkocan...

Decades after escaping the Nazis as...
