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 top
ics 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.
