Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Title: A Comprehensive Russian Grammar, Third Edition
Written By: Terence Wade
Edited By: David Gillespie
Series Title: Blackwell Reference Grammars

A Comprehensive Russian Grammar, by Terence Wade, is the definitive guide
to Russian usage and the standard reference work for students and
professionals alike. In the third edition, Russian language expert David
Gillespie updates and revises this highly acclaimed volume. His revisions
include updates to numerous examples and illustrations, as well as insights
into several new developments in Russian language usage since the collapse
of the Soviet Union in 1991. Gillespie also reveals the increasing
influence of globalization on Russian language structure. As before,
accessibility to the intricacies of Russian grammar is enhanced through
usage examples garnered from both modern sources and from classical literature.

This revised edition solidifies the position of A Comprehensive Russian
Grammar as the premier text for Russian language reference across the
English-speaking world.
