Hey, this was awesome! :) You might be interested in some other stuff inside Category:Proto-Slavic language. I based those "List of Proto Slavix POC" lists mainly from lexical stock listed in Alexander Schenker's "The Dawn of Slavic" book, but found lots of delicate errors inside it that I hoped to have eradicated mostly whilst copying them here (both in meanings of LPSl lexemes and some doubtful reconstructions). Rick Derksen's Slavic inherited lexicon which you can browse online for free is also great resource (as you probably already now :) You might also be interested in Category:Old Church Slavonic language, which has >2k entries (which is >20% of entire recoreded OCS lexis if I'm not mistaken ^_^). OCS is common pan-Slavic heritage and it would be great to have most basic lexemes of it defined here on wiktionary..
Anway..if you have any questions, just ask :) Cheers --Ivan Štambuk 18:46, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
- Buď pozdraven!! Thank you :-)) I am here new, so I have some classical "novice" problems :D My english is also not on a high level, because I use it only when reading, so excuse please some "defects" of my language :-) ...I only heard about this Alexander Schenker's book. I get the vocabulary mainly from RD's "Slavic inherited lexicon" and Trubačov's "Etimologičeskij slovar' slav'anskix jazykov". (http://essja.narod.ru/) :-) It's excellent, but on the russian site, with "russian" problems :D For the (late) Proto-slavic grammar I use some Radoslav Večerka's books, but their greatest "problem" is, that they're mainly about OCS, so it's there only very briefly...
- Yes, I found errors in these adjectives :-) maybe, there are still some, especially in the PIE section. Some words with athematic stem miss their suffixes. I'll try to correct, what can I recognize and add the cz/sk(/pl) vocabulary. But in all, I am very happy, because I found there a lot of new PS words :-)))
- I'm not very good in the OCS, I know only some basics, but I like it :-) My OCS dictionary has about 1500 words (there is really nothing :-P), so it could be for me a problem to do anything in the OCS.. Zdraví H.patera 20:43, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
- He he, don't worry, your English is just fine :) OCS morphology is basically identical with that of LPSl (did you notice how many of those LPSl reconstructions are equal to those actually attested in OCS? :). We're lucky that Slavic is the "youngest" IE branch. Anway, if you're interested, I could send you OCS->Czech dictionary in DjVu format on e-mail :) Just say what is it (or send it on my e-mail if you're afraid that spambots will harvest it if you publish it). --Ivan Štambuk 18:27, 29 January 2008 (UTC)
- Thanks :-) Yes the OCS and LPSl grammars are very similar, but OCS contains a lot of "greek elements", which are needed to be eliminated... hehe :-) Yes, we're lucky, I'm studying also the Old Latin and there are only 11 longer inscriptions (with at least one sentence :-)) from the years 700-450 BC. It is very interesting, gramatically was it very similar to classical latin, with nice perfect forms similar to german. fakio -> fefaket :-) Hehe :-)) Thanks a lot, I'll send you my mail address to your e-mail :-) H.patera 19:06, 29 January 2008 (UTC)
