About this item

Nesset presents a textbook based on material he uses to teach the history of the Russian language to people who are learning the language. He covers the scene: from prehistory to Peter I "the Great"; the texts: writing and literature in Kievan Rus' and Muscovy; the toolbox: linguistic tools for analyzing the history of Russian; morphology: pronouns, adjectives, numbers and numerals, and verbs; syntax; phonology: pre-Slavic and common Slavic vowels and diphthongs, pre-Slavic and common Slavic consonants, from Old Russian to Modern Russian, and stress and vowel reduction; and a visit from Novgorod: the language of the birch bark letters.
