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...

Couched in the recent Minimalist theory of syntax, A Syntax of Serbian: Clausal Architecture builds a skeleton of functional projections for Serbian, arguing that their inventory is limited to morphologically manifested categories in Serbian—Polarity, Aspect, Agreement, and Tense—each of which can project two layers: a subject layer and an object layer. It is in this functional skeleton that the central...

The sharp controversy of the 1920's between Russian formalists and Marxist ideologists resulted, for Soviet literary scholarship, in a lasting categorical opposition to all "formal" studies; failing the criterion of ideological commitment, "Formalism" became synonymous with "anti-Marxism." Extended to all art and art criticism, this attitude produced tragic excesses during the postwar Zhdanovist era. With the onset of de-Stalinization there...

Applying internal reconstruction and the comparative method, the author concludes that purpose clauses and complements to verbs whose subjects...
