Yuri Shevchuk Publishes “Ukrainian-English Collocation Dictionary” (Hippocrene Books)
July 21, 2021

Yuri Shevchuk (Lecturer in Ukrainian) is the author of the new Ukrainian-English Collocation Dictionary (Hippocrene Books), which provides the core Ukrainian lexicon as it is used in contemporary speech. This dictionary has no precedents in Ukrainian and Slavic lexicography and combines elements of six types of dictionaries: translation, collocations, learner’s, thesaurus, phraseological and encyclopedic dictionaries.

The Ukrainian-English Collocation Dictionary will be useful to Ukrainian language learners of all levels (elementary, intermediate, advanced and superior), Ukrainian language instructors and instructors of theory and practice of translation, Ukrainian-English and English-Ukrainian translators and interpreters, comparative linguists, lexicographers, researchers, business people, journalists, and anyone with an interest in the Ukrainian language. It is an irreplaceable resource for Ukrainian-speakers who study English and native speakers of Ukrainian who wish to perfect and enrich their Ukrainian.
