Language Overview

Russian is the most widely spoken Slavonic language, and like all the members of this family displays a rich and interesting inflectional system, with (at least!) six cases, three genders, aspectual contrasts, and across all of these categories a wealth of inflection class distinctions. The complexities of Russian morphology have made it a valuable testing ground for the development of a diversity of theoretical models and analytical techniques.
