Yefim Karsky

Yefim Fyodorovich Karskiy (Яўхім Фёдаравіч Карскі, Ефим Фёдорович Карский; Евфимий Феодорович Карский, older name form); 1 January 1861 (20 December 1860) – 29 April 1931) was a Belarusian-Russian linguist-Slavist, ethnographer and paleographer, founder of Belarusian linguistics, literary studies and paleography, a member of numerous scientific institutions, and author of more than 100 works on linguistics, ethnography, paleography and others. Karskiy was described by his contemporaries as extremely industrious, accurate, self-organised, and reserved in behaviour. He was acclaimed as a scientist of the highest integrity. Karskiy's input into contemporary Slavistics, especially into the Belarusian branch, was immense. The first significant revisions of Karskiy's views on the development of the Church Slavonic and Russian languages were proposed much later, by Viktor Vinogradov. One of the best known works of Karskiy is Belarusians.
