Grammar in a Pile of Sand


Author(s):
Abstract:
Laura Janda, professor of Slavic linguistics, studies the complexities of aspect and other Slavic grammatical categories. Janda uses rocks, sand, blocks of wood, and ping-pong balls to explain aspects which require adding a marking to every noun, pronoun, and verb in a sentence to indicate relationships among objects and ideas.
