ABSTRACT
The article focuses on dissimilative and assimilative phenomena in the Old Turkic language and provides a detailed analysis of the related monograph "The Old Turkic Runic as a Dissimilative Language" by Lars Johanson, a Swedish Turkologist (Johanson L. Altturkisch als "dissimilierende Sprache". -- Wiesbaden: Akademie der Wissenschaften und der Literatur Mainz, Franz Steiner Verlag GMBH, 1979). Russian Turkology has not so far been concerned with the phenomena of dissimilation in the Turkic languages. The traditional perception of the Turkic Runiform Script as an alphabetical system created an impression that Runiform texts could reflect the dissimilation of voiced and unvoiced consonants. However, the main concept that there are no dissimilative languages in the world exists in linguistic, though the material of the Old Turkic Runic reflects the opposite opinion. The analysis the Old Runiform texts and L. Johanson's monograph helps to create a new, original explanation and interpretation of the problem.a new, original explanation and interpretation of the problem.

    Robert Blust in this journal in 1996 drew attention to a process in a number of widely separated Oceanic languages in which the first a of an aCa sequence dissimilates to a higher vowel. In some of these languages the rule is still productive, while others show only historical dissimilation. He...

    Korean phonotactics prohibits complex codas; therefore, the language employs two strategies that allow for the breakup of consonant clusters to conform to this prohibition. These strategies include "relinking" (as used by Choo & O'Grady 2003:58-9), that is, the realization of consonant clusters...
