THE CLASSIFICATION OF SERBO-CROATIAN DIALECTS.
NAYLOR, KENNETH E.
THE CAKAVIAN GROUP OF SERBO-CROATIAN DIALECTS CAN BE RECLASSIFIED USING SYNCHRONIC CRITERIA RATHER THAN TRADITIONALLY USED DIACHRONIC CRITERIA. THE APPROACH IS TYPOLOGICAL RATHER THAN GENETIC AND COMPARES THE NOMINAL MORPHOLOGICAL AND MORPHOPHONEMIC SYSTEMS OF SEVEN DIALECTS SELECTED TO PROVIDE A GEOGRAPHICAL SAMPLING OF THE CAKAVIAN GROUP. TRADITIONALLY THESE DIALECTS ARE CLASSED AS BEING EITHER CONSERVATIVE, HAVING MORPHOLOGICAL SYSTEMS CLOSER TO THE SYSTEM OF COMMON SLAVIC, OR INNOVATING, WITH SYSTEMS MORE DIVERGENT FROM COMMON SLAVIC. THE CAKAVIAN DIALECTS CAN BE SYNCHRONICALLY GROUPED ACCORDING TO GENDER AND CASE SYSTEMS OF THE PLURAL, CASE SYSTEMS OF THE SINGULAR, KINDS AND DISTRIBUTION OF CONSONANTAL ALTERNATIONS, AND PATTERNS OF ACCENTUAL ALTERNATION. WITH THE EXCEPTION OF ACCENTUAL SYSTEMS, THE CLASSIFICATION OF THESE DIALECTS ACCORDING TO THESE SYNCHRONIC CRITERIA CORRELATES CLOSELY WITH THAT CLASSIFICATION USING HISTORICAL CRITERIA.
