[review of:] Cynthia Vakareliyska. 2015. Lithuanian Root List


Cynthia Vakareliyska. 2015. Lithuanian Root List. Bloomington. Indiana: Slavica Publishers. ISBN: 9780893574475.

The book, modelled on Charles Gribble's Russian Root List (1981), is intended for both linguists and students of Lithuanian and addresses problems encountered by non-native speakers when attempting to determine the structure of a longer Lithuanian word and identify the morphemes it consists of. Vakareliyska suggests a solution in the form of a list of the most common modern Lithuanian roots and affixes together with variants and a list of rules responsible for the most regular variants.
