Title: The Slavic Languages
Written By: Roland Sussex
Paul Cubberley
Series Title: Cambridge Language Surveys
Description:

The Slavic group of languages - the fourth largest Indo-European sub-group
- is one of the major language families of the modern world. With 297
million speakers, Slavic comprises 13 languages split into three groups:
South Slavic, which includes Bosnian, Serbian and Croatian; East Slavic,
which includes Russian and Ukrainian; and West Slavic, which includes
Polish, Czech and Slovak. This book, written by two leading scholars in
Slavic linguistics, presents a survey of all aspects of the linguistic
structure of the Slavic languages, considering in particular those
languages that enjoy official status. As well as covering the central
issues of phonology, morphology, syntax, word-formation, lexicology and
typology, the authors discuss Slavic dialects, sociolinguistic issues, and
the socio-historical evolution of the Slavic languages. Accessibly written
and comprehensive in its coverage, this book will be welcomed by scholars
and students of Slavic languages, as well as linguists across the many
branches of the discipline.
