ON THE OLD CHURCH SLAVONIC LANGUAGE OF SUPRASL LEXIKON OF 1722
Languages of publication
The Old Slavonic language of Suprasl Lexicon – a bilingual Old Church Slavonic-Polish dictionary published by Basilian printing house in 1722 – is a object of the analysis in the article. The description of phonetic features includes two types of phenomena: 1) proto-Slavonic continuants (of groups *tort, *tolt, *tert, *telt and *trt, *tlt, *tr’t, *tl’t, initial *je-, *ju-, clusters *tj, *dj, *kt’, *gt’) which in the text of the dictionary are represented by oppositional Old Church Slavonic and Ruthenian realizations, and 2) phenomena reflecting processes taking place in Western Ruthenian languages (particularly dispalatalization of consonants č, š, ž and r’). As regards morphological structure, the analysis concentrates on formal manifestations of lexemes of Old Church Slavonic origin, that is suffixes –tel’/-itel’/atel’, -ije/-nije, preffixes iz-/is-,vъz- /vъs-.
