About the Authors
  • Slavic Prosody is about the Slavic languages and how they changed over time, especially in their syllable structure and accent patterns. This is not a traditional comparative grammar but rather a discussion of selected problems in Slavic and how they relate to contemporary linguistic theory.

    • Coherent account of the Slavic languages at the time of their differentiation
    • Looks at how the Slavic languages have changed over time
    • Relates developments in Slavic to issues in phonological theory

    Reviews & endorsements

    "The book is a rich in information, Slavicists will enjoy the thorough historiography of their field; non-Slavicists will appreciate the detailed explications of Slavic data; all will welcome the many clear diagrams spelling out the author's one can deny that her book is a major contribution, an accomplishment that neither Slavicists nor phonlogists can afford to ignore." Slavic Review
