YaRD is the organ of The Linguistic Society of St. Petersburg.

According to the Journal's Constitution (I,3.), its aim is to
reflect the activities of the Society in general, as well as
of its divisions (seminars, workshops, etc.), and to give an
adequate picture of today's linguistics, both in Russia and in
the world. In this context, the Journal will be a forum for a
dialogue between East and West, which is concordant with the
role that St. Petersburg has traditionally played in the
history of Russia.

The Journal will contain articles, book reviews, and brief
notes on all issues of linguistics. It will be published
initially on an annual basis.

Contributions can be either in Russian or in English.

Notes and Bibliography should be at the end.

Abbreviated references to bibliographic items should be given
within the text, in square brackets: [Name year:].
Resumes of articles are required.
In addition to hard copy, a diskette (DOS format) is desirable.

MANUSCRIPTS should be submitted in 2 copies to
Vadim Kasevich, Editor,
Department of General Linguistics.

Subject: Wanted: Slavists from Europe

Dear subscribers,

A few of my linguist friends in Kazakhstan (former SU) are working on a
Russian thesaurus project and need funding. There is a grant that they
would like to apply for, but it requires that two of the participants be
from a Western European country or Israel. If anyone is interested in
collaboration or would like to know more about the project, please contact

Thank you very much for your help,
Ari Solovyova
