A new book (No. 11) from the edition of the Bosnian-Herzegovinian Dialectological Journal is just released by the publisher. This issue brings two important monographs. The first is The Speech of Old Muslims from Zenica, by Muhamed Arnaut, and second is Morphological characteristics of the speeches of Herzegovina and Southeast Bosnia, by Jasna Hadžimejlić.
The first text, which is author’s master thesis, is extensive analysis of Zenica’s speech from the phonetic, morphologic, syntax and lexical aspect, with consuetudinary apparatus for dialectological studies, such as dictionary, maps, dialectological texts and other additions. This monograph filled another gap that existed in the research of the Bosnian-Herzegovinian dialects.
The second text was created as part of the former great project of the Bosnian-Herzegovinian Dialectological Complex. Within this project, the dialectological material from 226 points was collected, systematically analyzed, and the results of the analysis had been published in the Bosnian-Herzegovinian Dialectological Journal. This analysis also belongs to this analysis and was created before the war, but the conditions for its publication acquired just now.
We hope that this issue of the Bosnian-Herzegovinian Dialectological Journal will find the way to its users, primarily dialectologists, and that it will be useful for their further research.
