Slavic Languages and Literatures | History of East Slavic
L573 | ALL | Feldstein


Traces the history of the East Slavic languages (Russian, Ukrainian, and
Belarusian) from their separation from Common Slavic to the present day.
Heaviest emphasis is placed on the phonological and morphological
development of Russian, including such topics as the development of Russian
phonemic consonant palatalization as a result of jer-fall, the evolution of
the Russian stress system, and major morphological changes in the history of
Russian.  Ukrainian and Belarusian developments are studied with the primary
goal of contrasting them to those of Russian.
