Definiteness in Bulgarian: Modelling the Processes of Language Change
Review text: "All in all, Mladenova's book is not only an important contribution to our understanding of definiteness, but also has broadened our horizons on the topic in general, and has given some important insights about the diachronic perspective as well as elucidated phenomena having been viewed as unrelated, namely, the lack of the definite article in the majority of Slavic languages and its preservation and re-building in the Balkan area."Lilia Schuercks in: Slavic and East European Journal 53.1/2009.
