Inter­ac­tions of vow­el qual­i­ty and prosody in East Slav­ic
BuchcoverThis book devel­ops an Opti­mal­i­ty-the­o­ret­ic mod­el of the inter­ac­tion of phono­log­i­cal tone with seg­men­tal sonor­i­ty, argu­ing that tone can inter­act direct­ly with vow­el qual­i­ty with­out medi­at­ing fac­tors such as syl­la­ble struc­ture or dura­tion. The pro­pos­al is test­ed against rich and com­plex pat­terns of vow­el reduc­tion in East Slav­ic dialects. Though the idea that tone con­sti­tutes a part of the phono­log­i­cal sys­tem of some Slav­ic lan­guages has been around for decades, the rela­tion­ship between tone and vow­el reduc­tion has not been sys­tem­at­i­cal­ly explored in pre­vi­ous stud­ies. A tone-based mod­el devel­oped in this book uni­fies many appar­ent­ly dis­parate phe­nom­e­na by propos­ing a lim­it­ed set of con­straints, whose min­i­mal re-rank­ings yield the attest­ed East Slav­ic vocal­ic pat­terns. On the descrip­tive side, this study for­mu­lates nov­el gen­er­al­i­sa­tions and presents lin­guis­tic data not pre­vi­ous­ly dis­cussed in gen­er­a­tive lin­guis­tics. This book will be of use to stu­dents and schol­ars inter­est­ed in phonol­o­gy, Slav­ic lan­guages, and the the­o­ry of gram­mar in gen­er­al.

Fyo­dor Dos­to­evsky — In the Begin­ning (1821–1845): A Life in Let­ters, Mem­oirs, and Crit­i­cism
More than a cen­tu­ry after his death in 1881, Fyo­dor Dos­to­evsky con­tin­ues to fas­ci­nate read­ers and review­ers. Count­less stud­ies of his writ­ing have been published—more than a dozen in the past few years alone. In this impor­tant new work, Thomas Marul­lo pro­vides a diary-por­trait of Dostoevsky’s ear­ly years drawn from the let­ters, mem­oirs, and crit­i­cism of the writer, as well as from the tes­ti­mo­ny and wit­ness of fam­i­ly and friends, read­ers and review­ers, and observers and par­tic­i­pants in his life. Marullo’s exhaus­tive search of pub­lished mate­ri­als on Dos­to­evsky sheds light on many unex­plored cor­ners of Dostoevsky’s child­hood, ado­les­cence, and youth. Speak­ers of excerpts are giv­en max­i­mum free­dom: Any­thing they said about the writer—the good and the bad, the truth and the lies—are includ­ed, with exten­sive foot­notes pro­vid­ing cor­rec­tives, counter-argu­ments, and oth­er per­ti­nent infor­ma­tion.
The first part of this vol­ume, „All in the Fam­i­ly,“ focus­es on Dostoevsky’s ear­ly for­ma­tion and school­ing, i.e., his time in city and coun­try, and his ties to his fam­i­ly, par­tic­u­lar­ly his par­ents. The sec­ond sec­tion, „To Peters­burg!,“ fea­tures Dostoevsky’s ear­ly days in Russia’s impe­r­i­al city, his years at the Main Engi­neer­ing Acad­e­my, and the death of his father. The third part, „Dark­ness before Dawn,“ deals with the writer’s youth­ful strug­gles and striv­ings, cul­mi­nat­ing in the suc­cess of his work, Poor Folk. This clear and com­pre­hen­sive por­trait of one of the world’s great­est writ­ers will appeal to stu­dents, teach­ers, and schol­ars of Dostoevsky’s ear­ly life, as well as gen­er­al read­ers inter­est­ed in Dos­to­evsky, lit­er­a­ture, and his­to­ry.
