Quantitative analysis of syllables in Slavic languages(Russian, Slovak, Serbian)
Kvantitatívna analýza slabík v slovanských jazykoch (ruština, slovenčina, srbčina)
Кванититативна анализа слогова у словенским језицима (руски, словачки, српски)
The project is focused on quantitative analysis of syllables in Slavic languages, namely, in Russian, Slovak, and Serbian. These three languages represent three geographical groups of Slavic languages (East, West, and South). Syllables, as opposed to other language units, have not been mathematically modelled systematically, the main reason being problems with their definition (i.e., with word syllabification). The aim of the project is to fill this gap. The syllabification can be performed algorithmically, the approach makes use, among others, of statistical tests. In particular, we will focus on models for syllable frequency and syllable length in the three abovementioned languages. We will work with orthographic input of texts. It is expected that the new models will be related to the already known models for grapheme frequencies and word length.
This project is co-funded Slovak - Serbian joint research project in the period 2017-2018.
