PREFACE

This work contains the proceedings of two meetings of the Finno-Ugric Studies Association of Canada. From the 1993 meeting are papers by Alan Libert (on Hungarian), Pirkko Muikku-Werner, László Szabó, and Riitta Välimaa-Blum, and from 1995 are papers by Marianne Bakró-Nagy, Hannele Dufva, Natalia Glukhova, Juta Kõvamees Kitching, Alan Libert (on cross-linguistic patterns), and Pirjo Helena Vaittinen. The languages and cultures range from Central Europe (Hungarian) to Northern Europe (Estonian, Finnish, and Votic) and farther east to the Urals (Mari).

The papers contained herein span three areas of Finno-Ugric studies: linguistics and language learning; drama and literature; and history. The field of linguistics is heavily represented with the contributions by M. Bakró-Nagy, H. Dufva, A. Libert, P. Muikku-Werner, L. Szabó, and R. Välimaa-Blum. In an analysis of historical reconstruction, Bakró-Nagy brings together semantics and etymological lexicography. Dufva takes a fresh look at how linguists treat errors and mistakes in language usage. In both of his contributions, Libert considers the syntactic and semantic nature of case marking; in the first paper, his attention focuses on Hungarian, and in the second, he considers the status of secondary case marking in a cross-linguistic study. Szabó discusses the correlation between stress and vowel length in Votic loan-words from Russian. Välimaa-Blum asks whether, in Finnish, the semantic and syntactic properties of words determine word order or word order itself encodes those semantic distinctions.

The two papers by N. Glukhova and one by P. H. Vaittinen consider structure in oral literature. In two contributions Glukhova scrutinizes the style of the Mari (Cheremis) oral tradition by examining magic charms, poetry, and prayers. Vaittinen explores Finnish folk poems and their dramatic structure. And in a contribution from the area of history, J. Kõvamees Kitching investigates the role of Estonian refugees as Twentieth Century Vikings in changing Canadian immigration policy after the Second World War.

Finally, we thank the many reviewers who have helped to assure the success of FUSAC '93 - '95 ACÉFO.
