LEARNING A FOREIGN LANGUAGE
Thomas R. Beyer Jr. Ph.D.
Learn Russian the Fast and Fun Way
The emphasis is on the Russian needed by tourists and businesspeople, as well as young people, in the newest addition to Barron’s Fast and Fun Way language series. Cheerful illustrations, grammar and vocabulary flash cards, learning exercises in the form of games and puzzles, and a special pull-out bilingual dictionary with a food and drink guide are just a sampling of the attractive features that help make learning Russian an adventure.
A Reference Grammar of Russian (Reference Grammars)
This textbook describes and systematizes all aspects of the grammar of Russian including patterns of orthography, sounds, inflection, syntax, tense-aspect-mood, word order, and intonation. It is especially concerned with the meaning of combinations of words (constructions) and the core concept is that of the predicate history (a record of the states of entities through time and across possibilities). Using predicate histories, the book presents an integrated account of the semantics of verbs, nouns, case, and aspect. It will appeal to students, scholars and language professionals interested in Russian.
