Riassunto: Formal Studies in Slavic Linguistics is a collection of selected papers presented at the Graduate Colloquia on Slavic Linguistics held at the Ohio State University, and as such presents current research of young scholars from top European and American universities. The present volume is a continuation of Issues in Slavic Syntax and Semantics (2008). Unlike its predecessor, Formal Studies in Slavic Linguistics exclusively focuses on synchronic analyses of challenging phenomena in various Slavic languages and expands its theoretical scope to include essays in virtually all areas of theoretical linguistics: phonetics, phonology, morphosyntax, syntax, semantics and pragmatics. The papers in this volume discuss consonant deletion in Russian and phonetic patterns in Russian loan words, properties of Slovenian clitics and the constructions involving the prefix na- in Slovenian, subjunctive clauses in Polish, Serbo-Croatian multiple wh questions, negative-contrastive ellipsis and impersonal constructions in Russian. The formal frameworks employed in the analyses of these phenomena range from optimality theory to minimalism. Given its broad empirical and theoretical scope, Formal Studies in Slavic Linguistics is bound to be of interest to Slavic scholars and general linguists alike.
About the Author: Anastasia Smirnova holds an ABD in Linguistics from the Ohio State University. Her main research interests are in the area of formal cross-linguistic semantics. She is currently working on a dissertation on tense and modality in Balkan languages. Among her most recent work is a collection of papers Issues in Slavic Syntax and Semantics (2008), co-edited with Matthew Curtis, and a paper 'Indexical tenses in intensional complements: Implications from Albanian' (2009). Vedrana Mihali ek is a 4th year PhD student in the Department of Linguistics at the Ohio State University. She completed her undergraduate degrees in Linguistics and Philosophy at Brandeis University. Her honors thesis, under the mentorship of Ray Jackendoff, dealt with instruments and accompaniments in Serbo-Croatian. Vedrana is interested in type-logical grammars and, on the empirical side, questions and word-order. In her dissertation, she plans to analyze a number of Serbo-Croatian word-order phenomena using a certain linear logic based type-logical grammar. Lauren Ressue is a graduate student at the Ohio State University studying in the Department of Slavic and East European Languages and Literatures. Her main linguistic interests are semantics, morphosemantics, and cognitive linguistics. Combining these areas, her Master s thesis addresses the question of morphological status of Russian verbal prefixes, in the hope of simplifying the semantics of these much-discussed morphemes.
