    Contours of the City arguably comprises one of the finest collections of free verse ever written in Ukrainian even though it was largely overlooked when it first appeared during the political transition to Ukrainian independence in 1991. It certainly deserves a broader audience both in Mohylny’s homeland as well as in the wider world. While it may be described as a one-hit wonder because of the poet’s premature death, it remains a brilliant hit for all time.
    Translator Michael Naydan received the Eugene Kayden Meritorious Achievement Award in Translation from the University of Colorado for a partial manuscript of his translations of Mohylny’s poetry into English in 1993. This edition includes a complete translation of Mohylny’s collection Contours of the City along with several poems translated by Virlana Tkacz and Wanda Phipps.

You can start at any chapter and dive directly into the topics that interest you the most.Part 2 - Basic English-Bulgarian dictionary: The index in the second half of the book can be used as a basic Bulgarian dictionary to look up words you have learned but can't remember or learn new words you need.Part 3 - Basic Bulgarian-English dictionary: Easy to use and with just the right amount of words, this third part finishes off with a second index that allows you to look for Bulgarian words and directly find the English translation
     
    How to use this Bulgarian vocabulary book:Not sure where to start? We suggest you first work your way through the verbs, adjectives and phrases chapters in part one of the book. This will give you a great base for further studying and already enough vocabulary for basic communication. The Bulgarian dictionaries in part two and three can be used whenever needed to look up words you hear on the street, English words you want to know the Bulgarian translation for or simply to learn some new words.
     
    Some final thoughts:Vocabulary books have been around for centuries and as with so many things that have been around for some time, they are not very fashionable and a bit boring, but they usually work very well. Together with the basic Bulgarian dictionary parts, this vocabulary book is a great resource to support you throughout the process of learning Bulgarian and comes in particularly handy at times when there is no internet to look up words and phrases.

    Bible Italics - Book of Genesis

    This book serves to reflect the impact of italised words on the Bible.
     
    Italicised words are words implied, but not actually contained in the original text.
     
    The italic “and” “or” “nor” is an alert that the word or words that follow are amplifications not found in the Hebrew text itself, but implied by it or by contextual factors.
     
    Let's take the following verse for example:
     
    Genesis 6:7
     
    So the Lord said, “I will destroy (annihilate) mankind whom I have created from the surface of the earth—not only man, but the animals and the crawling things and the birds of the air—because it [deeply] grieves Me [to see mankind’s sin] and I regret that I have made them.”
     
    It seems that the phrase “I regret that I have made them” was implied and not found in the Hebrew text.
     
    How could the All-knowing God do something that He knew He would later regret?
     
    If that is true, would He also later regret for saving me?
     
    But now that I know that phrase was implied, it kind of make more sense to me and help me to know my Father God better.
     
    The italicised words of the Amplified version of the Book of Genesis are compiled in this book with the main objective of enhancing the enjoyment of feeding on God's Word.

    The two most popular titles by the noted linguist and critic in one volume—an ideal introduction to his work.  On Language features some of Noam Chomsky’s most informal and highly accessible work. In Part I, Language and Responsibility, Chomsky presents a fascinating self-portrait of his political, moral, and linguistic thinking. In Part II, Reflections on Language, Chomsky explores the more general implications of the study of language and offers incisive analyses of the controversies among psychologists, philosophers, and linguists over fundamental questions of language.   “Language and Responsibility is a well-organized, clearly written and comprehensive introduction to Chomsky’s thought.” —The New York Times Book Review   “Language and Responsibility brings together in one readable volume Chomsky’s positions on issues ranging from politics and philosophy of science to recent advances in linguistic theory. . . . The clarity of presentation at times approaches that of Bertrand Russell in his political and more popular philosophical essays.” —Contemporary Psychology   “Reflections on Language is profoundly satisfying and impressive. It is the clearest and most developed account of the case of universal grammar and of the relations between his theory of language and the innate faculties of mind responsible for language acquisition and use.” —Patrick Flanagan
