Consonant /J/ in colloquial speech and its impact on writing

  • Blaga Paneva


The subject of this study is the use of the consonant /j/, which we conducted among high schoolstudents. Through written texts we reached the conclusion that a sonant as part of the consonant system isincorrectly used by students. Practice confirmed that the consonant /j/ (as most of the consonants: v, f, k, kj, gj,z, s, zh, sh) is incorrectly used in different positions in a word. Our goal is, through the analysis of examples, tosee how the acoustic effect of one sound sonant (which by its sound approaches vocals) affects the writingand how these changes contribute to the proper use of the spelling norm.
