Title: Old Church Slavonic
Subtitle: An Elementary Grammar
Written By: S. C. Gardiner
Description:

Old Church Slavonic, the language of the religious texts translated by
Saints Cyril and Methodius for the use of the Slavonic-speaking people of
Central Europe in the early Middle Ages, later to become the literary
language of medieval Russia and other East European countries, is a basic
component of Modern Standard Russian. This is an elementary grammar of the
language for readers of English. No previous knowledge of a Slavonic
language or of philology or linguistics is assumed, and the essential
points are explained with the minimum of technical terms. After a brief
historical introduction, the sound system and its representation by the
alphabets are described. The declensions and conjugations are then set out
clearly with examples. The syntax is treated more fully than in other
grammars of the language, and should be of particular help to the student,
as it includes many examples which can be used as reading material or as
the basis for exercises. A selection of reading passages is included,
together with a full glossary.
