MÄKKOSTNÁ KORELÁCIA A VÝSLOVNOSŤ MÄKKÉHO “ Ľ ”
Palatal correlation and soft consonant “ ľ “
Languages of publication
The author analyses on time axis the opinions of the linguists on the pronunciation of soft consonant “ľ “. He monitors also their approaches to the codification of its pronunciation in The Rules of the Slovak Orthography. From the synchronic point of view and in the background of the diachronic dynamics, he registers the tension between a codified norm and usage. He states that articulatory-acoustic convergence of the consonants l – ľ is conditioned by historical, sociolinguistic, administrative-legal and subjective reasons. The author expects on the basis of this analysis that a discussion about dual pronunciation of soft consonant ľ will be actual and legitimate, as Ľudovít Novák considered in the thirties. The tension between the norm and the usage is impossible to solve by administrative steps or legal orders. External interventions in the language have to be very sensitive and well thought-out.
