From Jazz and Rap to Dzhaz and Rep: Phono­log­i­cal Adap­ta­tion of Eng­lish Loan­words in Russ­ian
BuchcoverThe book pro­vides a sig­nif­i­cant insight into the com­plex process of Eng­lish loan­word adap­ta­tion in Russ­ian. It is based on an in-depth analy­sis and com­par­i­son of a rich body of exper­i­men­tal data on the adap­ta­tion of both estab­lished and online loans of those Eng­lish sounds absent from Russ­ian phone­mic inven­to­ry. The analy­sis is couched with­in the Opti­mal­i­ty-The­o­ret­ic frame­work. The uncov­ered pat­terns offer valu­able con­tri­bu­tion to the ongo­ing debate on loan­word phonol­o­gy.

Hier­ar­chy and mutu­al­i­ty in Par­adise lost, Moby-Dick and The broth­ers Kara­ma­zov
BuchcoverThe three works con­sid­ered in Hier­ar­chy and Mutu­al­i­ty in Par­adise Lost, Moby-Dick and The Broth­ers Kara­ma­zov dis­play a strik­ing over­lap in their con­cern with hier­ar­chy and mutu­al­i­ty as par­al­lel and often inter­sect­ing way of how human beings relate to each oth­er and to divine forces in the uni­verse. All three con­tain adver­sar­i­al pro­tag­o­nists whose stature often com­mands admi­ra­tion from audi­ences less ready to con­front their motives and deeds than to be swayed by their ver­bal harangues. Why the quest for per­son­al pow­er should dis­turb the seren­i­ty of mutu­al love with such com­pelling force is an issue that Mil­ton, Melville and Dos­to­evsky address with vary­ing degrees of self-con­scious­ness. In their texts the seeds of dis­as­ter seem to sprout in both spir­i­tu­al and bar­ren soil, some­times nur­tured by a hier­ar­chy that gave them birth, at oth­ers in reac­tion against a hier­ar­chy that would sti­fle their ener­gy. The pur­pose of this study is to ana­lyze the ori­gins and the con­se­quences of such ten­sions.
