Greetings!

I am currently starting a project in my Linguistics class and I wanted to choose Old Church Slavonic as the language for that project. However, my professor believes that Old Slavonic would be interesting, but he doubts that there is a grammar that includes a systematic analysis of the language's phonology. Does anyone here know if such a book exists, and if so, where could I purchase it?

Thanks so much!

Old Church Slavonic, or Church Slavonic?

For OCS, see Lunt's grammar.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Good Luck on your project!

I haven't compared Church Slavonic grammars, but there is one I've used written by Joseph Mcclellan, who is a CS language specialist. I found his book excellent, but unfortunately, it is no longer in my possession (I lent it to someone who has never returned it Sad).  I believe it is the CS we use in the church services and not OCS.

Are you looking for Church Slavonic, or true Old Church Slavonic? If the latter, The Slavonic Languages has some in-depth treatment of its phonology. Archbishop Alypy's grammar is for CS, not OCS, so if you're looking for OCS it won't be of any help.
