CH=SH/K;/L/2. I: = E/OU - the strong positioned A;/L/3. palatalization under the influence of I:, or iotizing YU; semi-palatalization/adaptive palatalization under the influence of E before the initial SH/ A before CH;/L/4. lack of palatalization after K+A;/L/5. F=B=V=Y(a)./L/ /L/The phonetic correspondences regulations of the above given examples stand the critics for the following reasons:/L/1/ the strict and consecutive correspondence of the following the CH/SH palatalization: I:, E, YU /iotizing/;/L/2/ OU preceeding B/V/Y;/L/3/ the absence of the palatalization in CH_V/K_V consonant interdepended chains, where the general shwa A is used;/L/4/ the interchangeability of F-V;/L/5/ the evolution of the K>SH>CH/L/ /L/A special attention is to be given to /L/*UKR: /DZYOB//L/*POL.: DZIO'B/L/* IT.: BECCO /'BEK:O//L/* EN.: BEAK /BI:K//L/Ivan Petryshyn
