Example text

In the soft example, the [c] is found in the basic form, which defines it as the soft type 3, meaning that the locative-dative is in -i/-y. The remaining complexity stems from the fact that the modern “soft” declension--type 3 here--actually includes synchronic softs, such as palatals, which opt for the ending -i, in contrast to historically soft dental affricates and alveopalatals, which opt for the ending -y. Thus, -k finals are hard and choose -e, -c finals are historically soft and choose -y, while palatal finals (like [ć]) select the -i ending.

The solution lies in the fact that any word with the standard [m’] plus vowel pronunciation also admits [m’j] plus vowel as a pronunciational variant, but such stem-finals are nevertheless treated as containing [m’a] as underlying grammatical entities and belong to feminine noun class 3, with the zero genitive plural.
