Sample text

Several changes brought about by this reform parallel the reforms of Russian happening at the same time: the complete abandon- 36 S e ct i o n 3: W r i t i n g ment of Greek letters and silent yers. However, Ѣ remained, as unlike in Russian it still represented a distinct sound. The Russian letter Ё was adopted for /jo/, which under the Russian system could only be represented with the awkward sequence йо. The letter Ғ was introduced, for the first time distinguishing /γ/ from /g/ orthographically.

The vast majority of second conjugation verbs with -ѣ- as the infinitive theme vowel are intransitive. Many have transitive historical counterparts with -и-, though sound changes predating Common Slavic have since obscured these pairs: горѣти gorě́ ti “burn (intr)”, жарити źáriti “make jealous”3; родѣти rodě́ ti “blush”4, рудити rudíti “embarrass”5. • Third conjugation verbs that appear to have the infinitive theme vowel -ѣ- actually have the stative suffix -ѣй- -ěi-. These verbs are typically derived (fairly transparently) from nouns or adjectives and mean “be ADJ” or “have NOUN”: омѣти omě́ ti “know how to” (from оме óme “intellect”).

N/, like other dental consonants, becomes palatalized [nʲ] before stressed front vowels. The palatal nasal /ɲ/ is pronounced [ɲ] in all dialects; the realization [nʲ] is not permitted by any standard, although it nevertheless may occasionally be heard. 5 Affricates Novegradian has two native affricates, /ts dz/, and one loan affricate, /tʃ/. All of these behave as though they were a single consonant; this can be emphasized by writing a tiebar above them in phonetic transcription, although for the sake of simplicity this will not be done here unless it is necessarily to contrast the affricates /t͡s d͡z/ from the sequences of discrete phonemes /ts dz/.
