Along with the innovations, which, however, are a continuation of long-existing structure of languages and seamlessly fit into their structure, in Indo-European languages, typological retained basis, which gives the language a so-called harmonious balance.

On Today there is an assumption that the Baltic languages in their current state is the closest to the original version of the foundation of Indo-European languages. Scientists have noticed this fact about recently. The reason for this was a general interest in other Indo-European languages and is based on them provide a picture of its parent language. Nowadays there is a new assumption that the Baltic Languages are a kind of 'balance' of Indo-European type. And early in the study of Baltic languages, and today there is a fairly definite point of view that is closest to them languages of the Slavic language group, and then – the German language group. Previously, support the hypothesis of the existence of an intermediate variant of Proto – Slavic-Baltic-German. A.

Leskin conducted research in this area and demonstrated that similar of This trio are the only Slavic and Baltic groups. In the early 20 century in the study of ancient languages of the northern part of the Balkan Peninsula, in particular, Thracian, Illyrian, and only in our time of their continue – the Albanian language, was seen in the proximity of their Balkan languages group. So, on the basis of these data we can describe the distribution area of the Baltic languages in ancient times. From the south, neighboring Baltic tribes were the Thracians and Illyrians in the west – the Germanic tribes from the east – the Slavs, and in the south-east, probably was the border with Iranian tribes.

American Pronunciation

If you want to sound more American-style, it's time to get acquainted with the rules of pronunciation of American English. These rules, of course, very much, but the education and training even the most basic of them raise your pronunciation to a new level. Many people believe that the interpretation given it a pushover for the people who know the language, and often they do not see the difference when you want to translate the text into German and English. So what is this Rules? Note: some of the following rules are used not only in American English. Many people are wrong and against the rules of standard English, so I decided to include in the list and the other rules. 1.

'T' becomes 'D' 'T' sounds like 'D', when placed between two vowels. For example: 'bitter' is pronounced as 'bidder', 'water' as a 'wader'. 2. Of Even though the word 'of' is spelled with 'F', pronounced it all the same with 'V'. This is an exception.

For example: 'it's made of wood' pronounced like 'it's made ov wood'. 3. 'S' or 'Z' Even if the word ends in a voiceless consonants (F, K, P, T, except the 'S'), 'S' is pronounced as voiceless' S ', but if a word ends in' ch ',' dg ',' s', 'sh', 'z', a vowel or voiced consonants, it is pronounced as more long, the vowel 'z' ('zzz'). For example: 'He looks' is pronounced with the voiceless 's' (because of the location at the end of the 'K'), but the 'judges' is pronounced with a voiced 'z', as 'judgezzz'. 'Trees' ends in a vowel (before the end of the plural 's'), so pronounce this word should be as 'treezzz'. 4. Many end-ed in past tense verbs ending in '-ed', but '-ed' is pronounced differently, depending on the end. If a word ends in a voiceless consonants, '-ed' is pronounced as 'T'. If a word ends in voiced consonants, pronounced 'D'. If a word ends in 'T' or 'D', '-ed' is pronounced like a regular 'ed'. For example: 'I walked' is pronounced 'I walk-t' (for 'K' on the end), 'I moved' is pronounced 'I mov-d' (because of the voiced consonant 'V'). 'I voted' pronounced 'I voted', as ends in 'T'. 5. -Ng endings in English, there are 3 nasal sound and 'ng' – one of them. 'Ng' – a combination of letters 'N' and 'G', but 'G' is not pronounced. For example: 'he is walking' is pronounced as 'he is walkin'. 'G' is not pronounced! This is just Some of the basic rules of English and American English pronunciation. Besides these, there are many other, but the study and practical application of the above rules no doubt smooth out your accent.
