Review Text

  • By Maia on 4 December 2015

    unique, does the language by words, but in sum: essential if you are studying Russian, i would say, having bought lots of books, along with a good book or two on verbs (pirogova's was my favourite), duckworth's vocabulary list (only accented one for beginners) and a good dictionary. I didn't get along so well with any of the big courses or grammars, because russian has so much stuff to cover that you can't start practising if you learn it in any logical order, so they chop it up into stupid bits - the male accusative and the female nominative plural or something - so you can start saying things, so books like this are the only place you can get logical in-depth facts/information. None of the big expensive books cover it all so well

    This is a most useful book for the intermediate student upwards. It contains lists of words which contain a common root, for example under the root'vet' meaning utter, say, speak - it gives the Russian and English for: bequest, promise, reply, greeting, advice, adviser, to promise, to answer, to confer, meeting.''I found it most interesting to see how words I know well are related to each other and recognising patterns is improving my knowledge of the language.It is especially useful for making intelligent guesses at the meaning of unknown words when I meet them.

    This book is a really useful resource for anyone learning Russian. I think it would be appropriate for beginners and up. Even for people who already have a good level of fluency it will be of interest. Really good for building vocabulary.

    Really cool book.

    There is nothing in Amazon's presentation here, or at American amazon.com, to show that it is a REPRINT FROM THE 1930s! That is shabby and deceptive. I am tempted to return it forthwith, with a note of protest.
