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.
