The author of the article examines a few 16th century Ukrainian manuscripts kept in Hungary with the intention of finding the reasons for the writing of the omega. He comes to the conclusion that the use of this Greek letter is mostly explained by orthographic motives, but it can also reflect the lengthening of the etymological voice o .

The Szeged Minea is a festal minea written in the Church Slavic language in the second half of the 16th century. Its text was published in the series Bibliotheca Slavica Savariensis edited by Professor Károly Gadányi. A new folio belonging to this manuscript was recently found, so the text edited hereafter can be considered an addendum to the earlier edition.

The present paper deals with the use of two Cyrillic letters (named jus) in the 16th-century Ukrainian manuscripts kept in Hungary. The majority of the codices contains both of these special letters, however, in a number of manuscripts, the confusion of the juses can be observed. The scribes probably tried to follow Middle Bulgarian norms but the orthographic features of the protographs could also appear in the copies weakening the outcome contrary to the scribes’ intention to follow the rules.

When codices are copied, errors cannot be avoided. Collecting and analyzing errors is important because they help us to draw textological or linguistic conclusions. However, there are mechanic copying errors from which no conclusions can be deduced at all. In this paper, the non-corrected errors of a 16th-century codex, the Szeged Minea, were analysed. As the protographs of this manuscript are unknown to us, a word form was considered as mistaken when it did not have a meaning or if the spelling could not be explained on the basis of the Church Slavonic language and orthography of the time. The conslusions made at the end of the present analysis help us to separate the mechanic copying errors from those that are applicable to further research.

Authors of previous studies concerning the Oriental (mostly, Turkish and Tatar) influence upon the Ukrainian language in the majority of cases focused on the presentation of Ukrainian word histories. The Oriental etymon as well as conduits of transmission were all too often almost neglected. However, a good etymological dictionary should be a common production of Slavicists and Orientalists. The present article shows some etymologies in which the Oriental background is somewhat closer investigated that it usually is the case.

The aim of this article is to find the answer whether there exist the masculines and neuters from the Proto-Slavonic 'i-theme' declension in the area of Mohylev (Belorussia). I was determined to pay my special attention to this problem after the research work on ?????? ???????? ???????? ???????????? by I. K. Bialkeviè (editors: M. B. Biry³a i A. A. Kryvicki, Minsk 1970). In conclusion, taking all the language facts into my consider­ation, I think that it is not possible to give a straightforward answer to the question with a view to frequently repeatable publishing errors. According to this fact, it is no doubt about the substantive peèen ?-the only clear and certain example of 'i-theme' declension from the group of supposed Mohylev archaisms. The other ones are questionable and need to be studied with full particulars in the future.

This paper aims at giving an overview of the main traditional tendencies and new trends in historical Slavic linguistics in Hungary. Traditionally, since the end of the 19th century, the main goal of investigations has been the interpretation of the Slavic linguistic and cultural influence on the Hungarian language and culture, having continuously been present in the Carpathian basin for more than a thousand year. The language contacts resulted in a vast number of lexical borrowings, calques, and toponyms of Slavic origin in Hungarian, and also in the appearance of Church Slavonic written sources of local redaction. The author describes the process of the methodological progress in the research of these areas and presents the most important results. Since the 1990’s, new trends have emerged in historical Slavic linguistics in Hungary that can be identified as the application of methods and frameworks of areal and theoretical (cognitive and generative) linguistics, which makes the renewal of this discipline possible.
