Translating by Factors (July 1996)

Language and Style of the Vedic Rsis
Language and Style of the Vedic Rsis (November 1994)
Tatyana J. Elizarenkova - Author
Wendy Doniger - Editor

"This is an extraordinary book, which could have been written by no one but Tatyana Elizarenkova. It is extraordinary because it combines two disciplines that no one else would dream of combining, or be able to combine: the modern, trendy, obscure discipline of semiotics, and the ancient, dusty, arcane discipline of Vedic philology. It is even more extraordinary because it combines them in such a way that they become mutually illuminating, that t...(Read More)
 
 
Linguistics for Writers

This book is designed so that writers, teach...(Read More)
