Amsterdam University Press (AUP) explores the discipline of Language and Literature through two key successful series. Languages and Culture in History studies the role foreign languages have played in the creation of the linguistic and cultural heritage of Europe, both western and eastern, and at the individual, community, national or transnational level. As research in language leads to extensive changes in our understanding and representations of grammar, the Comprehensive Grammar Resources series intends to present the most current understanding of grammar and syntax as completely as possible in a way that will both speak to modern linguists and serve as a resource for the non-specialist.
AUP are delighted to announce that The French Language in Russia (2018), co-authored by Derek Offord, Vladislav Rjéoutski, and Gesine Argent, has won the 2019 Marc Raeff Book Prize awarded by the Eighteenth-Century Russian Studies Association (ECRSA)!
To mark the publication of the first two volumes of Syntax of Hungarian in the Comprehensive Grammar Resources Series, edited by Gábor Alberti and Tibor Laczko, the books were presented at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in Budapest on Wednesday 30 January 2018.
