Tildelt: kr 45 999

One of the most remarkable features of Russian phonetic word is so-called prosodic nucleus uniting stressed and 1st prestressed syllables in contrast to all other unstressed syllables. Our intention is to conduct a research of Russian prosodic nucleus in two directions. First, to give a phonological description of prosodic nucleus in Russian dialects by means of contemporary phonological theory (Optimality Theory and Cognitive Phonology); second, to examine the pitch contour of prosodic nucleus in Russian against Norwegian.
