“Linguistic Achievements of Sviatoslav Karavansky in Today’s Realities”



Friday, December 18, 2020. Yuri Shevchuk took part in the virtual roundtable “Linguistic Achievements of Sviatoslav Karavansky in Today’s Realities” organized by the Institute of the Ukrainian Language at the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. He presented a paper entitled “Sviatoslav Karavansky and the Practice of Contemporary Ukrainian Lexicography” in which he discussed the contribution of this leading and yet to be appreciated Ukrainian linguist and lexicographer to the studies of contemporary Ukrainian and the task of reversing the decades of Russification of the Ukrainian language and culture. In his paper, Yuri Shevchuk dwelt at greater length on how Karavansky’s lexicographical methodology was used in the Ukrainian-English Collocation Dictionary, a project that has no precedents in Slavic and English bilingual lexicography, slated for publication in late March 2021.
