Jakobson’s Remarks on the Evolution of Russian and the Slavic Languages
Audio-Visual

Description

Analyzes the methodology of Jakobson’s pioneering 1929 book on historical linguistics. Introduces Jakobson’s principles of compatible and incompatible features (such as tonal accent, intensity accent, and vowel quantity). The paper then presents the historical implications of incompatible feature coexistence, resulting from phonological change, as exemplified by the various Slavic language zones after the loss of final jer vowels.

Basic Principles of Russian Noun Stress
Audio-Visual

Description

Presents a new analysis of the Russian stress accent system, based on the Russian noun. The system presents a total of three basic stress types to cover a multitude of actual stresses. This is achieved by predicting the behavior of each large stress type on the basis of nominative and genitive case endings. Type A is fixed; Type B is determined by genitive endings (either zero or non-zero); and Type C by nominative endings (either high/low or mid/zero).

In 1990, the Department of Education established the first Language Resource Centers (LRCs) at U.S. universities in response to the growing national need for expertise and competence in foreign languages. Now, twenty-five years later, Title VI of the Higher Education Act supports sixteen LRCs, creating a national network of resources to promote and improve the teaching and learning of foreign languages.

LRCs create language learning and teaching materials, offer professional development opportunities for language instructors, and conduct and disseminate research on foreign language learning. All LRCs engage in efforts that enable U.S. citizens to better work, serve, and lead.

8 Areas of Focus

Each LRC has a unique story and mission, but all LRC work is organized around eight basic areas:
  • Research
  • Teaching materials
  • Digital tools and resources
  • Assessment
  • Professional development
  • Less commonly taught languages initiatives
  • K-12 initiatives
  • Outreach and dissemination

You may also contact each LRC individually by locating their directory information in the Meet the LRCs menu.
