Z dziejów “akania” – “jakania” w języku rosyjskim
On the Development of “akanye” and “yakanye” in Russian
Languages of publication
In the Southern Russian dialects as a result of unstressed vowel reduction, the sound , which represented /o/ after the hard consonants, coincided with [a], so that akanye appeared. In the western group of the Southern Russian dialects unstressed [о£], which represented /ω/, coincided with [u] in some words or remained as [о]. The difference between dissimilative and strong akanye arose as a result of the realization of the same phonetic model – the model of akanye in the dialects with the different rhythmical structure of the word. Zhizdrinski type of dissimilative jakanye, complicated by the assimilation of the pretonic vowel to the stressed vowel [o] and/or [е], is the base of another types of dissimilative jakanye. It is more appropriate to call them the types of assimilative-dissimilative jakanye. The base of the types of assimilative-dissimilative jakanye is strong jakanye, that is why it is more appropriate to call them the types of assimilative-strong jakanye.
