Vogul 

TIMOTHY RIESE
University of Vienna

The Vogul language (endogenous name: Mansi) is spoken by approximately
3.000 speakers in northwestern Siberia. Together with Ostyak, it forms
the Ob-Ugrian branch of the Finno-Ugrian language family and is
generally considered to be closest relative of Hungarian. In the
introductory section general information on the Vogul people and their
sociolinguistic situation is given. The dialect described in the
following sections on Vogul phonology, morphology, and syntax is the
Northern one, spoken by the greatest majority of modern Voguls and
forming the basis for the literary language. Vogul is in the most
respects a typical agglutinative language and its grammar is
relatively straightforward, i.e. unencumbered with major rules of
inflection. In this study particular care is taken to place (Northern)
Vogul in a general Finno-Ugrian and a complete Vogul context. This
means that although the major emphasis lies on the synchronic
description of (Northern) Vogul, the discussion is supplemented by
obervations of a historical nature to show to which extent (Northern)
Vogul has adhererd to general Finno-Ugrian patterns and to which
extent it has diverged both from the related languages and other Vogul
dialects. This study closes with a (Northern) Vogul folklore text with
an interlinear transcription and translation

Russian

EDNA ANDREWS
Duke University

The present volume is a unique representation of Russian grammar that
includes a fundamental description and analysis of the cornerstones of
Russian grammatical categories, while providing presentations of
lexical meaning, word formation and the interaction of grammatical and
lexical meaning in the nominal, adjectival and verbal systems of the
Russian language. The language of the metalinguistic texts will be in
English coupled by extensive examles from CRD that are sufficiently
grounded in meaningful contexts informed by pertinent cultural
information.
	
Although this work is devoted primarily to contemporary standard
Russian (CSR), we will also include remarks and commentary that
include information about the historical development of the Russian
literary language, as well as relevant data in the area of language
innovation in a variety of registers, including colloquial,
specialized/professional, and substandard language.
	
The following prelimary table of contents will demonstrate the logical
development and reasoning upon which Russian has been conceived:

1. The Russian Case System. 
a. Historical underpinnings of the case system of CSR. 
b. Case system of CSR i.declensions, ii. agreement iii. declensional shifts, 
 iv. gender shifts, v. desinences, vi. significance of syncretisms. 

2. The Russian Verb System. 
a. Categories of tense, mood and aspect, 
b. Conjugation and the one-stem, 
c. Participle/verbal adverb foramtion and aspect relations, 
d. Verbal government and variation. 

3. Deictic word forms in CSR. 

4. Distribution of the categories of person, number and gender: 
 significance and hierarchy. 

5. Nondeclining word forms,
a. prepositions, 
b. enclitics/particles, 
c. substantives, 
d. question of native Slavic roots and their relationship to foreign 
 borrowings,i. ancient borrowings, ii. recent borrowings. 

6. Word formation,
a. substantival, 
b. adjectival, 
c. verbal, 
d. deverbal. 

7. Semantics of nonroot morphemes, 
a. purely lexical morphemes, i. suffixes, ii. prefixes, 
b. morphemes as grammatical and lexical. 

8. Syntactic relations and the meaningfulness of word order.
