There are Special Paper XII Options on the structure and the history of other Slavonic languages, especially:
- Bulgarian / Macedonian
- Croatian / Serbian
They are usually offered by students in Russian, Czech or Polish. In special cases, they may also be available to students in other Modern Languages depending on their linguistic background. The paper gives students the opportunity to explore the linguistic development of one Slavonic language and its modern sound system, grammar, vocabulary and usage. Students usually start their study of the language in the first year of the Honours course and attend a language course in the relevant country before embarking on tutorials in the final year.
A range of Slavonic languages and corresponding papers in philology, linguistics, literature and history are also available at graduate level, in the M.St. and M.Phil. in Slavonic Studies.
