Inhaltsangabe: Ukrainian for Undergraduates is primarily intended as a textbook for students with some previous knowledge of Ukrainian, whether from the home, Saturday schools, high schools, or an elementary language course at the university level. Since the proficiency level of these students will necessarily be uneven, the textbook covers all the elements of basic morphology. The organization of the material proceeds from the easiest elements (e.g., the nominative case of nouns and the past tense of verbs) to the most complex (e.g., adjectival and adverbial participles). All of the material is presented from the point of view of an English speaker learning Ukrainian.
Ukrainian for Undergraduates is divided into twenty-three chapters and an introduction to phonetics. This division readily corresponds to a lesson per week in a twenty-six-week academic year, with the first two weeks devoted to phonetics, and one week remaining for testing and review. Since the aim of the textbook is to instill rules of morphology, only a basic vocabulary of approximately 1300 words is provided, sufficient to allow for grammatical pattern drills and translations. Each chapter is preceded by a vocabulary list of words to be used in the drills and explanations. A short table of contents in each chapter provides a quick reference to the morphological items covered in the lesson as well as to the equivalent terminology in Ukrainian. This, it is hoped, will facilitate a transfer to a Ukrainian-language textbook in the next level of instruction.
There are no dialogues or readings in Ukrainian for Undergraduates. This is a conscious omission. Although dialogues play an important part in any conversational approach, the aim of this book necessitates some limitations. The constraints imposed by a limited vocabulary and the relatively short time available for instruction would make dialogues both oversimplified in content and ineffective in reaching the desired goal. In place of dialogues this textbook envisions the use of language tapes to reinforce morphological forms, vocabulary, accentuation, and intonation through audio-oral drills. Suitable language tapes, together with a manual, are available.
The accentuation and orthography, as well as the lexical fund are based on standard literary Ukrainian as presented in H. Holoskevych, Pravopysnyi slovnyk (New York, 1962) and Orfohrafichnyi slovnyk ukrains'koi movy (Kyiv, 1995). Where the two differ, preference was usually given to Holoskevych. Parallel accents, words, and forms, however, are provided where it was felt that, although one may be preferred, others are equally correct in standard literary usage.
