Description

The 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.
