A Handbook of Slavic Clitics

By Steven Franks; Tracy Holloway King | Go to book overview

Preface

This book has been several years in the making. In 1995 we realized that our mutual and in many ways complementary interests in Slavic clitics could serve as the basis for a major publication. The rapidly growing literature on the topic, from theoretical and descriptive perspectives, seemed to call for a comprehensive study of Slavic clitics. As the work evolved, it took on a life of its own. The descriptive portions turned out to be just as challenging as the analytical ones, and we sought help from as many different sources as we could. Numerous individuals affected the end result, and here we would like to acknowledge them. First and foremost, there is no way we could have even begun to tackle such a project without the advice of speakers of the languages described in these pages. Your patient feedback on examples, ranging from the mundane to the painfully arcane, has been essential in making this book a reality. We hope that you will forgive us for any places where we have unintentionally misrepresented your judgments. We hope that any lapses or misinterpretations of the data will inspire future work to correct them.

The following individuals provided invaluable help with specific languages:1 Bulgarian: Galia Alexandrova, Zlatko Anguelov, Lilia Schurcks-Grozeva, Roumyana Izvorski, Nikita Nankov, Ernie Scatton, and Roumyana Slabakova; Czech: Mirjam Fried, Hana Filip, Karel Oliva, Jindra Toman, and Lida Veselovská; Macedonian: Ilija Čašule, Victor Friedman, Olga Mišeska-Tomić, and Elena Petroska; Polish: Kazimierz Adamczyk, Piotr Bański, Bożena Cetnarowska, Katarzyna Dziwirek, Bożena Pruska, and Adam Szczegelniak; Russian: Irina Sekerina and Misha Yadroff; Serbian/Croatian: Željko Bošković, Wayles Browne, Milan Mihaljević, Ljiljana Progovac, Sandra Stjepanović, and Sasha Vukić; Slovak: Martin Klein, Marcela Molčanová, Eva Schneiderman, Michal Starke, and Martin Votruba;2 Slovenian: Wayles Browne, Marta Pirnat-Greenberg, and Marija Golden; Sorbian: Gary H. Toops and Eduard Werner; Ukrainian: Svitlana Budzhak-Jones and Ronald Feldstein.
