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.
