A Computational Phonology of Russian by Peter A. Chew

By Peter A. Chew

This dissertation presents a coherent, synchronic, broad-coverage, generative phonology of Russian. I try the grammar empirically in a couple of how one can ensure its goodness of healthy to Russian. In taking this method, I goal to prevent making untested (or even incoherent) generalizations according to just a handful of examples. ordinarily, the checks express that there are exceptions to the speculation, yet at the very least we all know what the exceptions are, a baseline is decided opposed to which destiny theories might be measured, and in general the proportion of outstanding circumstances is diminished to lower than 5%. The vital theoretical results of the paintings are as follows. First, I express that every one of the phonological or morphophonological methods reviewed will be defined by way of a grammar not more robust than context-free. Secondly, i use probabilistic constraints within the syllable constitution grammar to provide an explanation for why constraints on word-marginal onsets and codas are weaker than on word-internal onsets and codas. I argue that the positive factors [+/- preliminary] and [+/- final], and extraprosodicity, are pointless for this goal.

In addition. The third controversial issue is the status of the long palatalized fricatives (8'I=<5'I), as in the examples in (21). (21) (a) (b) (c) 1). 8'I=<5'I! as independent phonemes. 8'I! exists morpheme-internally (as in (21a)), but that (8'I) represents a combination of 12 Only relevant morpheme boundaries are shown.

62/46! ‘window’ [nom. /6264! ‘windows’ [gen. ]). The morphological tokenization for these forms was input manually. As it turned out, 967 of the 2,493 words in Oliverius (1976) were nouns; 835 of these were included in the theorem dump. Some of these nouns are identified by the theorem dump as having incomplete paradigms, so the number of inflected forms including head-words identified by step (b) of (1) was 9,633 (slightly less than 12 835 = 10,020). 2. 30 The morphologically parsed inflected forms were combined with the rest of the morphologically parsed head-words in Oliverius (1976), giving a sample of fully morphologically parsed words as in Table 2.

One of the products of the research carried out by Brown and his colleagues at the University of Surrey (Brown, Corbett, Fraser, Hippisley and Timberlake 1996) is a ‘theorem dump’ listing the inflected forms of 1,536 nouns. This file includes comprehensive information about word-stress, but the words are only partly morphologically tokenized (since steminflection but not stem-internal morpheme junctions are given). g. $;0%2! ‘fool’) in Oliverius (1976), find whether it is a noun by searching through the on-line version of Zaliznjak (1977), which provides part-of-speech information.
