THE SLAVIC LANGUAGES - THEIR EXTERNAL HISTORY.
BIDWELL, CHARLES E.
THIS INTRODUCTION TO THE HISTORY OF THE SLAVIC LANGUAGES IS DESIGNED FOR COLLEGE STUDENTS INTERESTED IN SLAVIC AREA STUDIES OR HISTORY. THE AUTHOR FIRST PRESENTS A GENERAL TYPOLOGY OF THE SLAVIC LANGUAGES AND LISTS THEM WITH THEIR MAJOR SPEECH COMMUNITIES. THE BACKGROUND OF EACH LANGUAGE IS THEN DISCUSSED IN SOME DETAIL INCLUDING THE MAJOR HISTORICAL INFLUENCES ON PRESENT FORM AND STANDARDS OF USAGE. FREQUENT EXAMPLES ILLUSTRATE THE CORRELATION BETWEEN LANGUAGE CHANGE AND FOREIGN CONQUEST AND POLITICAL DOMINATION. NO PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE OF LINGUISTICS IS NECESSARY TO USE THIS STUDY. (JD)
