Ukrainian-English Collocation Dictionary
A groundbreaking new Ukrainian language resource!
"Yuri Shevchuk's Ukrainian-English Collocation Dictionary is a highly welcome addition to Ukrainian lexicology, the first of its kind to present the most frequently found combinations of Ukrainian words in a modern setting with fluid, pitch-perfect English translations. It will be a major reference for students learning Ukrainian, for travelers, and for advanced speakers of Ukrainian, who will profit from its wide-ranging morphological, syntactic and lexical detail."
--Michael S. Flier, Harvard University
The Ukrainian-English Collocation Dictionary provides the core Ukrainian lexicon as it is used in contemporary speech. This dictionary has no precedents in Ukrainian and Slavic lexicography and combines elements of six types of dictionaries: translation, collocations, learner’s, thesaurus, phraseological and encyclopedic dictionaries.
The Ukrainian-English Collocation Dictionary will be useful to Ukrainian language learners of all levels (elementary, intermediate, advanced and superior), Ukrainian language instructors and instructors of theory and practice of translation, Ukrainian-English and English-Ukrainian translators and interpreters, comparative linguists, lexicographers, researchers, business people, journalists, and anyone with an interest in the Ukrainian language. It is an irreplaceable resource for Ukrainian-speakers who study English and native speakers of Ukrainian who wish to perfect and enrich their Ukrainian.
