Sample text

This rise in F2 is written here with a directional subscript indicating fronting: [ƒö]. Because [ó] and [u]⁄ have lower values of F2 , the rise of F2 is quite precipitous in anticipation of the palatalized consonant of j vj´lt ‘about fashion’ [ mj´öd˛ ì], ,éhz ‘storm’ [bu5r˛⁄ ´]. C O N T E XT 3: C ¸ VC o : In the third context -- after a soft consonant before hard, as in vz´n ‘crumpled’ [m˛a5t]⁄ (Fig. 3) -- F2 in the initial transition rises very quickly from the previous labial to an early peak of more than 2000 Hz, and then dips to a minimum after the vowel’s midpoint, rising slightly at the end in anticipation of the final hard dental.

The vowels [ƒ ó ú] respond to adjacent consonants in a similar way. 4 The behavior of [ƒ], illustrated in Fig. 1, can be taken as representative of [ƒ ó ú]. 1), their contours are similar. C O N T E XT 1: C o VC o (#VC o ): The basic allophone is a central vowel, written without diacritics as [ƒ], which occurs between hard consonants, Co VCo (and in initial position, VC o ). 1 and Fig. 1), F2 starts low (1100 Hz) after the hard labial [mo ] and gradually rises throughout the vowel, in anticipation of the final hard dental [to ].

Similarly, prime and double prime, defined as the Romanization of the soft sign and the hard sign, are often replaced by a single or double closed quotation mark, or omitted altogether. ) Moreover, search programs in electronic library catalogues ignore them. The British System (British Standard 2979, 1958) renders consonant letters in the same way, but has different equivalents for vowel letters: ≤z≥ =≤ya≥, ≤/≥ = ≤yu≥; ≤i≥ is used consistently for ≤q≥. The results in this system -- ≤Yalta≥, ≤dyadya Vanya≥, and ≤geroi≥ -- seem a more congenial guide to pronunciation for English speakers.
