Description - Dictionary of Russian Personal Names by Morton Benson

The Dictionary has been compiled to meet the need for a reference work on the stress and morphology of Russian personal names. It is intended primarily for students and teachers of Russian. It can also be useful to others--radio and television announcers, government officials, scientists, research workers, librarians--who find it necessary to pronounce Russian personal names. Long out of print, the Dictionary is the only work that gives adequate rules for determining the stress of most Russian surnames. The Dictionary not only indicates stress for a large group (23,000) of surnames; it also describes the general rules that enable users to determine the stress of surnames not listed. It fully describes the declension of surnames, with their stress shifts and lists the most frequently given names and their basic diminutives. New to the Cambridge edition is a practical, user-friendly guide to declension and stress that students will particularly appreciate. The bibliography has been updated, and there is additional coverage of transliteration systems.
