Multilingualism and Translation

Studies on Slavonic and Non-Slavonic Languages in Contact


Edited By Vladislava Warditz and Beatrix Kreß

This volume intends to create a new angle within this wide field of research and to systematize the most relevant approaches and ideas on this topic in international Slavonic studies.
