Book Information

   

Title: The Russian Language
Subtitle: A Brief History
Written By: G. O. Vinokur
Edited By: James Forsyth
Translated By: Mary A. Forsyth
Description:

Professor Vinokur (1896–1947) discusses each of the stages in the
development of Russian from its Common Slavonic source, and the growing
dominance of the dialect of Moscow from the sixteenth century, up to the
ninenteenth century when the language had virtually reached its present
form and into the twentieth century. Each stage is illustrated by extensive
quotation, all examples of Old Russian being translated into English, but
examples in modern Russian appearing in the original only. This 1971 text
will be of value to students of Russian with a basic linguistic grounding
who are beginning their study of the historical development of the language.
