This chapter describes a theory of phonology that employs ordered rules and illustrates how it accounts for certain complex phenomena central to the phonologies of three Slavic languages: Russian, Czech, and Serbo-Croatian. It considers three important principles of phonological rule application, assumes that such application is preceded by morphological structure building, and argues that all Slavic nouns have the tripartite form Root + Theme + Case-Number. The chapter also looks at the genitive plural form of nouns in the Slavic languages.

Keywords:   phonology, Slavic languages, Russian, Czech, Serbo-Croatian, phonological rule, morphological structure, nouns
