This notice of a recent acquisition to the East European and Slavic Collection that includes articles on South Slavic linguistics is in honor of the approaching 17th Annual Kenneth E. Naylor Memorial Lecture in South Slavic Linguistics. This year’s lecture by, “Reimagining the Balkans and Widening the Bund: Does Moldova Belong?,” Donald L. Dyer (University of Mississippi) will be held in the Campus Commons on the 11th Floor of the Thompson Library, The Ohio State University, April 11th at 3:30pm.
