RUSS 393 - Russian Phonology
An examination of the sound system of contemporary Russian, including suprasegmentals (stress, intonation, juncture). Readings on important issues in Russian phonology by both Russian and Western specialists. Particular emphasis on socio-cultural themes: 1) the significance of phonological differences between standard literary Russian and colloquial speech; 2) nonstandard pronunciations, both regional varieties and urban "prostorechie," and assessments of them by different populations; 3) phonological and intonational developments in emigre Russian and the implications thereof for speakers in the motherland; 4) more broadly, mainstream attitudes toward identifiably non-mainstream speech forms. (This course satisfies one semester of the College's social- science requirement as a linguistics offering.) Taught in Russian.
