The Sounds of English and Russian.
This four-part study introduces the reader to the methods and procedures used in descriptive linguistics and their application to the sound systems of English and Russian. A condensed phonology of English includes discussion of consonants, vowels, stress, phrasing, and pitch. The section on Russian phonemes examines: (1) consonant and vowel phonemes; (2) palatalization, voicing, and classification of consonants; (3) vowels; and (4) other phonemes. A comparison of Russian and English sounds in nine areas concludes the paper. Numerous examples of words transcribed in phonetic symbols illustrate linguistic principles.
