Kaulfürst, Fabian: The Creation and Integration of Sound Data in the German-Lower Sorbian Internet Dictionary as a Starting Point for a Discussion of of Lower Sorbian Orthography


Lětopis Abstract 2019 1: Kaulfürst, Fabian: The Creation and Integration of Sound Data in the German-Lower Sorbian Internet Dictionary as a Starting Point for a Discussion of of Lower Sorbian Orthography

This article introduces the project “Creation and Integration of Audio Data Files in the German-Lower Sorbian Internet Dictionary and summarizes its results in relation to Lower Sorbian orthoepy. It documents the procedural method for recording information on pronunciation in the online dictionary, the technical production using special software and the steps in quality control. The main part of this piece presents the preliminary pronunciation rules, which formed the basis of the project. For this purpose disparate information on orthoepy from a number of different sources were collected and compared, critically examined and extended. A number of comments on articulation and pronunciation difficulties for language learners were developed on the basis of experiences from the recordings. The article deals with, among other things, accent, syllable boundaries, vowel quantity, assimilation and co-articulation phenomena and indicates the need for further research. This applies among other things to the different production qualities of <e> in different positions as well as in the connection with further phenomena, e.g. with de-palatalization of preceding consonants. There is also need for further research into different assimilation phenomena as well as into possible generalizations (e.g. in the production of the prefix <pśe> as [pɕɛ] also preceding soft consonants). The largest research gaps appear in the area of the pronunciation of foreign and loan words; it is for this reason that the article restricts itself largely to the Lower Sorbian lexis of proto-Slavonic origin.
