Message 2: presuppositions in Russian

Subject: presuppositions in Russian

Dear colleagues!

My name is Olga Vybornova. I study in Moscow Linguistic University,
Russia. The subject of my thesis is
"Presuppositional component of communication and its applied modeling".
I would very much like to get in touch with Russian linguists who are
interested in the subject of presuppositions. If somebody could
recommend me some books in Russian written in 1998-2001 (I am especially
interested in classification of presuppositions in Ruissian), I would
really appreciate it.
I am looking forward to mutually useful cooperation.

Olga Vybornova
