Message 1: Slovakian Materials

Subject: Slovakian Materials

Dear linguists,

I am a final year student at University of Hertfordshire and am at the
stage of collecting information for my dissertation. Being Slovak(ian),
I've chosen to discuss cases, declension and assimilation of Slovak nouns
and adjectives; however, I am struggling to find suficient resources.

I have tried the SSES (School of Slavonic and European Studies) at UCL in
London where they would not let me photocopy or borrow books. The British
Library requests come back stating that sources could not be located.

Does anybody at all know where I can find books or articles written on
Slovak Morphology (specifically nouns and adjectives), in Slovak or English
language? If so, would you be kind enough to advise me how to obtain them?

I would really appreciate any comments anyone might have about my query.

Thank you all,
Best wishes,

Can someone please point me in a likely direction for an English-Ladino
language dictionary? In particular, my interest lies in medieval era
Ladino. I will post later with the compiled responses.

Thank you,
