Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Title: Formal Studies in Slavic Linguistics
Edited By: Anastasia Smirnova
Vedrana Mihaliček
Lauren Ressue

Formal Studies in Slavic Linguistics is a collection of selected papers
presented at the Graduate Colloquia on Slavic Linguistics held at the Ohio
State University, and as such presents current research of young scholars
from top European and American universities. The present volume is a
continuation of Issues in Slavic Syntax and Semantics (2008). Unlike its
predecessor, Formal Studies in Slavic Linguistics exclusively focuses on
synchronic analyses of challenging phenomena in various Slavic languages
and expands its theoretical scope to include essays in virtually all areas
of theoretical linguistics: phonetics, phonology, morphosyntax, syntax,
semantics and pragmatics. The papers in this volume discuss consonant
deletion in Russian and phonetic patterns in Russian loan words, properties
of Slovenian clitics and the constructions involving the prefix na- in
Slovenian, subjunctive clauses in Polish, Serbo-Croatian multiple wh
questions, negative-contrastive ellipsis and impersonal constructions in
Russian. The formal frameworks employed in the analyses of these phenomena
range from optimality theory to minimalism. Given its broad empirical and
theoretical scope, Formal Studies in Slavic Linguistics is bound to be of
interest to Slavic scholars and general linguists alike.
