Affricated dental plosives in Russian: phonological status and perceptual cues as a trigger of sound changes

Standard Modern Russian has phonological contrast between palatal- ized and velarized consonants. One of the most prominent changes attributed recently to this part of its phonetic system is the dramatic aƵrication of pala- talized dental stops which are now pronounced in most phonetic contexts as aƵricates [tsj], [dzj]. The paper proposes the hypothesis that a fast spread of palatalized dental stops’ aƵrication in Standard Modern Russian is triggered by the need to more eƵectively distinguish palatalized plosives in situations that do not provide the primary acoustic cue (formant transition of adjacent vowel) for their diƵerentiation to the listener. Palatalized dental plosives still should be treated phonologically as stops since in the context of homorganic nasal or stop they are not aƵricated (and often unreleased), while the fricative part of dental aƵricates in the same position still preserved in pronunciation of all the subjects studied.

A sacral text in the focus of diachrony: hardships of translation (as exemplified by the material of Latin, Old Greek and Germanic languages)

The article concerns the research of functional and linguistic peculiarities of religious discourse in different historical periods. The author considers the religious discourse as a method, consistently reproduced in time and space, of transmitting the complex of meanings of a sacral text with account of the mentality, religious experience and objective reality of people speaking a certain language in a certain phase of history. The contrastive analysis of polyglot sacral texts appearing as a significant part of religious discourse and being a subject of rendering into different languages is worthwhile only when historical, chronological, sociocultural and situative factors which have an impact on the meaning of a sacral text are taken into consideration. Since translators were expected to observe the compulsory rules of rendering the meaning and structure of the source text, translations appeared that distorted the text meaning or did not reproduce it accurately.

British and Russian Traditions of Children’s Literature, with Special Reference to The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time

В отличие от русской традиции, британские авторы, пишущие для детей и подростков, уделяют большое внимание проблеме толерантности, создавая книги, где ребенок или подросток с особенностями развития выступает в качестве протагониста.

Challenged harmony. Byzantine dispute over the form of the universe

Throughout the whole Byzantine era we witness the coexistence of the spherical conception of the universe which has its’ roots in ancient science and the pattern of tabernacle based on the Holy Writ. Only once in 6th century the opposite views became a subject for a dispute, but even then rather as a part of a broader theological controversy. Since that time the two conceptions survived in different cultural milieus and thence had no point of intersection. Only in 12 century Michael Glycas writing his chronicle in a simple language approaches the issue. Proving that the universe has a shape of a sphere he tries to make scholar knowledge available to a general public. By doing so he even dares to come into contradiction with John Chrysostom himself.

Changing Attitudes: Reconsidering the Role of Turkish in the Community of Pontic Greeks in Cyprus

The present paper examines the linguistic behaviour of the first wave of Pontic Greek immigrants to Cyprus based on their internalized language attitudes and dominant language ideologies. Since the time of its settlement in Cyprus in the early/mid 1990s, the predominantly Turkish-speaking community of Pontic Greeks has experienced a rapid linguistic and cultural transformation. This occurred primarily due to the local population’s (i.e. Greek-Cypriots’) reluctance to recognize the Turkish-speaking Pontic Greeks as belonging to the Greek linguistic and cultural ‘world’ in light of the former’s historical and socio-political tensions with the Turkish-Cypriot minority. More specifically, I will analyse the factors that have contributed to this rapid language shift and show what (non-) linguistic means are employed by the members of the Pontic Greek community to index their ethnic identity and belonging.

KHODASEVICH’S INTERPRETATION OF NINA PETROVSKAYA’S ÉMIGRÉ LIFE: ON THE POETICS OF 'RENATA’S END', A MEMOIR ESSAY

В статье анализируется один из ключевых для понимания специфики русского символизма мемуарных очерков «Конец Ренаты» (1928) В. Ходасевича. Основное внимание сосредоточено на том, как Ходасевич объяснял заграничную жизнь Петровской. Мемуарист приписывает своей героине символистскую жизнетворческую модель, основанную на идее двойничества. Вместе с тем, осмысление заграничной жизни Петровской связано с тяжелым эмигрантским опытом самого Ходасевича. …

Mining media topics perceived as social problems by online audiences: use of a data mining approach in sociology

Благодаря развитию концепции Web 2.0, аудитория Интернет-СМИ получила возможность участвовать в производстве информации и предлагать собственные определения социальных проблем, которые зачастую отличаются от мнения медиа-экспертов. Анализ подобного пользовательского контента может предоставить социальным исследователям доступ к ранее неизвестной информации, но часто требует знания современных и нетривиальных методов анализа данных. В данной работе показано, как такие методы, как тематическое моделирование и анализ тональности, могут быть использованы для выявления и анализа тем, проблематичных с точки зрения аудитории новостных Интернет-медиа. Информационную базу исследования составили 33 877 новостных статей и 258 121 комментариев к ним, собранные с сайтов региональных новостных агентств. Сконструированные нами метрики позволили обнаружить, что заметность социальных проблем в текстах медиа отличается от их популярность среди аудитории. Предложенный подход также может помочь медиа-исследователям выявлять наиболее заметные и негативно воспринимаемые аудиторией темы, которые могут быть использованы в качестве индикатора наличия социальных проблем. …

Plato and ἀδύνατον: The Alibi of One Utopia

The paper discusses the realistic application of Plato’s Kallipolis, providing results of recent studies on Greek colonization and cultural poetics. The Republic is just one among other colonization projects proposed by Athenian intellectuals in 4th century BC. Participants of the dialogue are quite familiar with real colonization practices. Socrates gives concise and clear indications on the typical recolonisation scenario to implement. The notoriously enigmatic saying that the ideal polis is to be found “nowhere on earth,” should be examined in the context of legendary tales about the foundations of colonies.

Russian Scholarly Journals in Science Communication

The paper summarises results of a pilot study aimed at assessment of the representation of Russian science in the media in order to understand to what extent contemporary Russian academic journals are included into popular science communication. The analysis showed that most of the media publications reporting on the achievements of Russian scientists did not cite academic publications. Low visibility of Russian scholarly journals in popular media calls into question the importance of their role in science communication. The probable reason for that in the Russian academia, “the weight” of a statement depends more on the social status of a scientist or other public figure than on the system of scientific communication through professional journals.
