A GRAMMATICAL SKETCH OF OSSETIC.
ABAEV, V.I.
THIS TRANSLATION FROM THE RUSSIAN IS THE FIRST FULL-LENGTH GRAMMAR OF OSSETIC TO BE PUBLISHED IN A WESTERN LANGUAGE SINCE 1903. THE PRESENT WORK IS ACTUALLY A COMPOSITE OF TWO WORKS BY MR. ABAEV WHICH APPEARED IN 1952 AND 1959 AND WERE TRANSLATED AND EDITED BY GABOR HORVATH, STEVEN P. HILL, AND HERBERT H. PAPER AS ONE OF A SERIES OF TRANSLATIONS OF IRANIAN LANGUAGE GRAMMARS FROM RUSSIAN TO ENGLISH. ABAEV'S CRYLLIC ORTHOGRAPHY FOR OSSETIC WAS RETAINED WITHOUT TRANSLITERATION AND HIS ORGANIZATION OF THE SKETCH REMAINS AS IN THE ORIGINAL. THE COMPILER OF THIS EDITION INCLUDED ABAEV'S EXAMPLES OF CONTRAST BETWEEN OSSETIC AND RUSSIAN AND HAS INCREASED THE NUMBER OF EXAMPLES TAKEN FROM LITERATURE TO HELP ILLUSTRATE THE MEANING AND USE OF GRAMMATICAL NORMS. THE PRINCIPAL SUBJECTS TREATED ARE PHONETICS, MORPHOLOGY, WORD FORMATION, AND SYNTAX. THIS DOCUMENT APPEARS IN PART II OF THE "INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF AMERICAN LINGUISTICS," VOL. 30, NO. 4, OCTOBER, 1964, AND IS AVAILABLE FOR $3.00 FROM THE DIRECTOR OF PUBLICATIONS, RESEARCH CENTER IN ANTHROPOLOGY, PATTON HOUSE, INDIANA UNIVERSITY, BLOOMINGTON, INDIANA 47405.
