This handbook comprises an in-depth presentation of the state of the art in word-formation. The five volumes contain 207 articles written by leading international scholars. The XVI chapters of the handbook provide the reader, in both general articles and individual studies, with a wide variety of perspectives: word-formation as a linguistic discipline (history of science, theoretical concepts), units and processes in word-formation, rules and restrictions, semantics and pragmatics, foreign word-formation, language planning and purism, historical word-formation, word-formation in language acquisition and aphasia, word-formation and language use, tools in word-formation research. The final chapter comprises 74 portraits of word-formation in the individual languages of Europe and offers an innovative perspective. These portraits afford the first overview of this kind and will prove useful for future typological research. This handbook will provide an essential reference for both advanced students and researchers in word-formation and related fields within linguistics.

At the beginning of the twentieth century, Yiddish was widely viewed, even by many of its speakers, as a corrupt form of German that Jews had to abandon if they hoped to engage in serious intellectual, cultural, or political work. Yet by 1917 it was the dominant language of the Russian Jewish press, a medium for modern literary criticism, a vehicle for science and learning, and the foundation of an ideology of Jewish liberation. The Revolutionary Roots of Modern Yiddish, 1903-1917 investigates how this change in status occurred and three major figures responsible for its transformation.

Russian Irrationalism from Pushkin to Brodsky

Russia, once compared to a giant sphinx, is often considered in the Anglophone world an alien culture, often threatening and always enigmatic. Although recognizably European, Russian culture also has mystical features, including the idiosyncratic phenomenon of Russian irrationalism. Historically, Russian irrationalism has been viewed with caution in the West, where it is often seen as antagonistic to, and subversive of, the rational foundations of Western speculative philosophy. Some of the remarkable achievements of the Russian irrationalist approach, however, especially in the artistic sphere, have been recognized and even admired, though not sufficiently investigated. Bridging the gap between intellectual cultures, Olga Tabachnikova discusses such fundamental irrationalist themes as language and the linguistic underpinning of culture; the power of illusion in national consciousness; the changing relationship between love and morality; the cultural roots of humour, as well as the relevance of various individual writers and philosophers from Pushkin to Brodsky to the construction of Russian irrationalism.

In February 2014, Russia initiated a war in Ukraine, its reasons for aggression unclear. Each of this volume's authors offers a distinct interpretation of Russia's motivations, untangling the social, historical, and political factors that created this war and continually reignite its tensions. What prompted President Vladimir Putin to send troops into Crimea? Why did the conflict spread to eastern Ukraine with Russian support? What does the war say about Russia's political, economic, and social priorities, and how does the crisis expose differences between the EU and Russia regarding international jurisdiction? Did Putin's obsession with his macho image start this war, and is it preventing its resolution? The exploration of these and other questions gives historians, political watchers, and theorists a solid grasp of the events that have destabilized the region.

La historia de la Unión Soviética (1917-1991) se transformó de manera vertiginosa en las últimas décadas. Los historiadores, hasta hace poco limitados a usar la escasa información oficial, cuentan ahora con el valioso auxilio de los archivos, admirablemente conservados, que día a día se abren para la investigación. A la vez, el derrumbe del régimen soviético invita a mirar su pasado con una visión menos orientada a buscar en él la prefiguración del mundo futuro que a rastrear, en ese breve siglo de existencia, el desarrollo acelerado de procesos característicos de toda la historia occidental: la industrialización, la urbanización, la transformación agraria, el proyecto educativo y, sobre todo, la construcción de un Estado nacional. Sheila Fitzpatrick, una de las mayores especialistas en historia soviética, autora de estudios innovadores acerca del período estalinista, ha elaborado en La revolución rusa una síntesis comprensiva, sólidamente sustentada en los últimos avances historiográficos, en la que combina viejas y nuevas preguntas. Este libro intenta responder una de ellas: ¿cuándo terminó la revolución soviética? La historiadora elige el ambiguo lapso de vísperas de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, cuando el régimen estalinista proclamó la victoria de la revolución misma y el comienzo de la normalidad, mientras iniciaba la más profunda "purga", que conllevó la matanza de la primera camada de dirigentes revolucionarios. En esta nueva edición actualizada, La revolución rusa vuelve a afirmarse como un libro introductorio y de referencia, conciso y a la vez cargado de análisis agudos. Una ventana para quienes quieran asomarse a uno de los acontecimientos más complejos y dramáticos del siglo XX.

Cultural and Linguistic Minorities in the Russian Federation and the European Union

This is the first comprehensive volume to compare the sociolinguistic situations of minorities in Russia and in Western Europe. As such, it provides insight into language policies, the ethnolinguistic vitality and the struggle for reversal of language shift, language revitalization and empowerment of minorities in Russia and the European Union. The volume shows that, even though largely unknown to a broader English-reading audience, the linguistic composition of Russia is by no means less diverse than multilingualism in the EU. It is therefore a valuable introduction into the historical backgrounds and current linguistic, social and legal affairs with regard to Russia’s manifold ethnic and linguistic minorities, mirrored on the discussion of recent issues in a number of well-known Western European minority situations.
