Example text

Acoustically the centralization of unstressed vowels shows up as less extreme values for both F1 (reflecting vowel height) and F2 (reflecting frontness vs. 14 The set of unstressed vowels occupies a smaller portion of the vowel space than the set of stressed vowels. As an indirect consequence of the reduced size of the vowel space, unstressed vowels tend to merge. 16 We rely on various kinds of indirect evidence such as etymology, orthography, and related word forms. The fiction, however, is unavoidable.

Specifying the values of F1 and F2 goes a long way towards defining a vowel. It takes a little time for each vowel to reach its target position, and some of the duration of vowels is spent in transition from the preceding to the following consonant. Different places of articulation (labial, dental, alveo-palatal, velar) have characteristic effects on vowels, specifically on F2 . Labial consonants ([p] or [m]) depress the value of F2 in the transition to the vowel; dentals ([t s]) raise F2 , and velars ([k g x]) are intermediate in their effect on F2 .

One might take the point of view that speakers of Russian manipulate whole CV and VC sequences as conventionalized phonetic units. Localizing palatalization (or its absence) in the consonant alone is an oversimplification. ’ is pronounced without palatalization, as it often is in an informal register, the preceding vowel is also affected, hence [o⁄m] instead of [o5m ⁄ ˛ ]. Or when velars palatalized before [È] in the history of Russian, the change in the consonant was correlated with a change in the vowel -- [kÈ] changed to [k˛ i].
