This study is concerned with element order in written literary Russian, a study usually known as word order, a term which is slightly misleading in that it is concerned not only with the order of individual words, but with the order of various groupings of words (or elements of grammatical structure). In this, the only book in English devoted to the subject, Dr Bivon examines both types of order. The study also contains a bibliography of the most important works, arranged under three headings: works on 'word order' itself, on grammatical analysis and on contextual analysis.
