The Stress of Russian Surnames.
Benson, Morton
Slavic and East European Journal, v8 n1 p42-53 Spr 1964
An investigation of Russian surnames reveals a system in which pronunciation is largely determined by two sets of factors. The author considers in detail the relationship between the stress in a surname and the stress in a word from which the name is derived and also the relationship between the stress in surnames and their "endings" as they are written in traditional orthography. It is demonstrated that, while most Russian surnames are systematically derived, many exceptions and individual pronunciations do exist. (RL)
