In this scholarly volume, each of the living Slavonic languages are analysed and described in depth, together with the two extinct languages - Old Church Slavonic and Polabian. In addition, the various alphabets of the Slavonic languages - particularly Roman, Cyrillic and Glagolitic - are discussed, and the relationships of the Slavonic languages to other Indo-European languages and to one another, are explored. The last chapter provides an account of those Slavonic languages in exile, for example, Russian, Ukrainian, Polish, Czech and Slovak in the USA. Each language-chapter is written by an expert in the field, in a format designed for comparative study. Information on each language includes: an introductory description of social context and development (where appropriate); a discussion of phonology; a detailed presentation of synchronic morphology, noting major historical developments; comprehensive treatment of syntactic properties; a discussion of vocabulary; an outline of main dialects; and an extensive bibliography, listing English and other sources.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"It is clear that the editors were meticulous in conceiving and enforcing the design of this book, in order to produce a valuable and definitive reference work. Indeed, I believe they have achieved this aim in a remarkable fashion, and am sure that every Slavist will find this hefty volume an invaluable resource. . . . I highly recommend this work to all scholars of Czech and of Slavic languages in general."
-Laura Janda, "Czech Language News, Spring 1994
"There is no doubt that "The Slavonic Languages will be on the shelf of everyone in the field of Slavic languages and linguistics. The book surpasses many earlier works on the Slavonic languages and it fulfills many of its ambitious goals."
-"The Slavic and East European Journal
