Colleagues in Slavonic studies around the world will note
with sadness the death of Professor R.G.A. de Bray on 29th
May. Reginald de Bray held chairs at Monash University, the
University of London, and the Australian National University.
His "Guide to the Slavonic Languages" has been a standard
reference for four decadea. Over the last 8 years he has been
working on a large Macedonian-English dictionary, a project
which the Australian National University and his colleagues
will seek to carry through to completion.
