The Rusyn Language is the first grammar of Rusyn in English, and the first
of the Rusyn of Slovakia (termed "Prešov" Rusyn) in any language. In many
ways, the book is a traditional grammar: it treats the phonology and every
morphological category of the language, as well as providing basic
syntactic information and a selection of illustrative texts in Rusyn.

In addition to describing Prešov Rusyn, this grammar also supplies
comparative data from Lemko and Subcarpathian Rusyn - variants spoken in
Poland and Ukraine, respectively. This is done in order to identify the
central linguistic core of the Rusyn linguistic continuum; this information
will be of interest to Slavists as well as to language planners who are
contemplating the formulation of a supra-regional Rusyn literary language.
Prešov Rusyn - just like every other variant of the language - is a
fascinating linguistic entity because it is characterized by a great deal
of variation. It is of especially great interest to Slavists because it is
a language that can be seen as a bridge between East and West Slavic: Rusyn
is clearly East Slavic, but has been in contact with West Slavic for a very
long time, with clear consequences for the present-day state of the language.
