Reviews

"Elson operates within a traditional structural framework to account for an enormous amount of data. His book is aimed at the specialist in South Slavic linguistics. . . . He is familiar with the relevant literature on the subject and gives the interpretations of others. . . . Elson has established himself as one of the leading American Slavists with an interest in Macedonian. The present volume is a worthy contribution to the increasing literature by non-Yugoslavs on the language." - Slavic and East European Journal
