Synopsis

Russian Pronunction Illustrated by Dennis Ward

Dennis Ward, who died aged 84, was the first Professor of Russian at Edinburgh University. Having graduated from Christ's College, Cambridge, with first class honours, Ward successfully established an honours degree course and a full Russian and Slavonic studies department at Edinburgh, where he worked from 1949. Ward's Russian Pronunciation Illustrated was first published by Cambridge University Press in 1966. Its illustrated format is designed to easily transport the reader through the vowels and dipthongs of the Russian language, whatever their native tongue. Each sound that Professor Ward introduces the reader to is presented alongside a series of lively illustrations, and workable examples of words, phrases and whole sentences. A pioneer for the teaching and learning of Russian, Professor Ward has here created an engaging and entertaining volume which will be of use to any student of Russian wishing to get to grips with the pronunciation of this fascinating language.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!
