With one foot still in its Soviet past, Belarus might not be the most obvious choice for travellers, but its isolation is at the heart of its appeal. Those who venture here will find a history rich in heroism and tragedy, set amid a landscape of primeval birch forests, snow-edged lakes and cornflower fields, replete with golden-orbed Russian Orthodox churches and villages where age-old traditions still hold sway. While it's easy for visitors to feel as though they've slipped into another time and dimension, they'll encounter singular hospitality and a genuine welcome.Nigel Roberts' Belarus, the only standalone guide in English to the country, combines detailed background information with expert practical advice for those seeking to take the road less travelled.

Russian Science Grammar

Author: A. G. Waring
Publisher: Elsevier
ISBN: 9781483185613
Release Date: 2014-05-16
Genre: Foreign Language Study

Russian Science Grammar presents the fundamental differences between the parts of speech in Russian and English. This book discusses the function of words in Russian, which is shown by changes in the endings of the words themselves. Organized into 10 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the distinct features of the Russian sound system. This text then explains that stress varies not only from word to word, but often between various forms of the same word where it changes in declension or conjugation. Other chapters consider the grammatical division of clauses into noun, adverbial, and adjectival. This book discusses as well classification of clauses designed to facilitate recognition and translation. The final chapter deals with understanding complex sentences, particularly in scientific Russian where they are often very involved. This book is a valuable resource for students who are interested in understanding the Russian alphabet and science grammar.

The Oxford Handbook of Derivational Morphology

Author: Rochelle Lieber
Publisher: OUP Oxford
ISBN: 9780191651786
Release Date: 2014-09-25
Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

The Oxford Handbook of Derivational Morphology is intended as a companion volume to The Oxford Handbook of Compounding (OUP 2009) Written by distinguished scholars, its 41 chapters aim to provide a comprehensive and thorough overview of the study of derivational morphology. The handbook begins with an overview and a consideration of definitional matters, distinguishing derivation from inflection on the one hand and compounding on the other. From a formal perspective, the handbook treats affixation (prefixation, suffixation, infixation, circumfixation, etc.), conversion, reduplication, root and pattern and other templatic processes, as well as prosodic and subtractive means of forming new words. From a semantic perspective, it looks at the processes that form various types of adjectives, adverbs, nouns, and verbs, as well as evaluatives and the rarer processes that form function words. The book also surveys derivation in fifteen language families that are widely dispersed in terms of both geographical location and typological characteristics.
