Slavic studies at Brown is one of the few unique undergraduate programs nationwide that responds to students’ individual academic interests and attends to their future professional goals.

 East Slavic languages - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Current East Slavic languages are Belarusian, Russian, Ukrainian, and Rusyn (a small language spoken in Eastern Slovakia, South Eastern Poland, Eastern Hungary and South Western Ukraine and regarded by many as a Ukrainian dialect).
When the common Old East Slavic language became separated from the ancient Slavic tongue common to all Slavs is difficult to ascertain (6th–11th century).
The history of the East Slavic languages is a very 'hot' subject, because it is interpreted from various political perspectives by the East Slavs "like all mortals, wishing to have an origin as ancient as possible" ("sicut ceteri mortalium, originem suam quam vetustissimam ostendere cupientes"), as Aeneas Sylvius observed in his Historia Bohemica in 1458.

 Macedonia FAQ: The Macedonian Language In the Development Of the Slavic Literary Languages   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
The modern Russian literary language was created, first among all the modern Slavic languages in the eastern sphere, in such a way that it represents, generally speaking, a synthesis between Church Slavonic and the popular language of the higher levels of Russian society in the 18th century.
The national languages gradually began to be affirmed in literary activity, mainly from the 14th century on, at first functioning only as a lower stylistic level in contrast to Latin, which retained its place as the language of high culture.
The Polish literary language, whose origins date to the 13th or 14th century at the earliest, is unique among the Slavic literary languages in that it has developed without interruption from its beginnings until the present.

 Common Slavic language grammar
Slavic also knew the i- stem which formed the so-called anaphoric pronoun (*jï, je, ja), seen in Adjectives section (see).
The anaphoric pronoun *jï could hardly be used independently at the time when Slavs spoke one single language, but later, already in Old Church Slavonic time, the anaphoric pronoun became substitute for personal pronouns of the 3rd person ("he, she, it, they") and possessives of this person ("his, her, its, their").
In fact, all ancient languages of the family decline cardinal numerals, though their paradigm is limited: some of them are used only in singular or only in dual, some do not have gender.

These data show that for any given language the status of the genitive adjunct construction is comparable to that of the partitive construction rather than to that of the genitive of negation construction.
The consequences of the analogical spread of {-ov} are both morphophonemic (restriction of vowel-zero alternations in certain Belorussian stems, accentual modifications in Ukrainian), and semantic (markedness reversal and semantic marking with an unexpected desinence in all three).
The spread of {-ov} to nouns of all genders both in the standard languages and in the dialects also represents the final stage of the loss of gender distinctions in the oblique plural cases of these languages, a process which was completed in the other oblique cases several centuries ago.
