Russian is an Indo-European language of the Slavic family, spoken in
Russia. Determine from the following Russian data whether the low
front [a] and the low back [ɑ] complement each other as allophones
of the same phoneme or whether they are in contrast as allophones of
separate phonemes. If they are allophones of separate phonemes,
provide evidence for your claim. If they are in complementary
distribution, pick one allophone as the basic sound, and give the
conditioning phonetic contexts for its allophones. [pj], [tj], [dj], [zj],
and [lj] are palatalized consonants.
