Charters of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania in Volodymyr Rozov’s Manuscript Archives: New Sources

The article analyzes materials from the archive1 of V. Rozov. they contain knowledge important for modern historical linguistics and dialectology. The material is based on a deep and systematic study of charters from the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, which Rozov made in publications of 1917 and 1928. Basically, the archive comprises manuscripts written in the Kyiv period, as well as from 1925 to 1940, when V. Rozov taught at the universities of Skopje and Zagreb. new archival materials, which have not yet been the subject of a separate historical and linguistic study, reveal the expansion of the scientific concept of V. Rozov – from studying the phonetics of the Volyn dialect and the charters of Švitrigaila to a generalized presentation of the classification of business documents of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries and dia- lectal differentiation of the language.


Key Words: archive of Volodymyr Rozov, historical dialectology, Volyn dialect
