Course objectives
The seminar is focused on Proto-Slavonic as a common predecessor of Slavonic languages and on tendencies of development on the individual Slavonic languages. The stress is on the development of Proto- Slavonic phonology and morphology as well as on the origin and development of Slavonic script. At the end of the course students should be able to reconstruct the Proto-Slavonic form of a word, to transform the reconstructed Proto-Slavonic form into forms existing in the individual Slavonic languages, to decline Old Church Slavonic nouns, to read Old Church Slavonic texts written in Cyrillic, to provide an elementary philological interpretation and transliteration.
