A Linguistic Introduction

Paul Cubberley, University of Melbourne, Australia

This book provides an accessible introduction to the structure,
history and sociolinguistics of Russian. It particularly emphasizes
the special linguistic features of Russian which are not shared with
English and other non-Slavic languages. For intermediate/advanced
students of Russian, the volume helps to reinforce their understanding
of how Russian word formation and syntax functions. Students and
scholars of linguistics will find it a useful starting point for
comparative work involving the structure of Russian and the Slavic
languages, or issues such as standardization, multilingualism, and the
fate of former colonial languages.
