Book Information

   

Title: Studies in the Modern Russian Language
Written By: I. P. Foote
R. M. Davidson
Description:

Note: This is the re-issue of a previously published book.

The first two of these studies are published together in one booklet; Foote's
study is of those verbs of motion which have two distinct imperative forms.
The distinction between these 'determinate' and 'indeterminate' forms is
discussed and analysed at length. Davidson deals with a problem of case
choice which arises in the earliest stages of learning the language. He gives
clear rules for making the choice. Both studies give numerous examples, in
cyrillic type, from modern authors and refer the reader to other technical
studies.
