GALICIANS I The Art Songs – Booklet

Ukrainian Language Transliteration Chart

The Audio Spoken Texts of the songs will help to clarify the rules below.

1. ‘j’ and the apostrophe ’ are pronounced similar to the ‘y’ in English: ‘yes’, ‘say’:

e.g. jabluko (apple), haj (grove), junyj (young),

e.g. n’i (no), d’ido (grandpa), t’i (those), s’im (seven), l’ito (summer), z’irka (star) , ts’i (these),
horyt’ (it burns)

2. z.h compared with zh:

(i) z.h = z + h – 2 separate sounds
(ii) zh = voiced sh as in vision – 1 sound

3. Ukrainian L

2 ways of pronouncing L in Ukrainian:

In the transliterated clusters: La, Le, Lo, Lu and Ly (pronounced as in English: sit – see chart below for Ukrainian И, и), L is pronounced further back in the mouth,
eg. as in English bottle;

The same applies if L is the last letter in a word or syllable, eg. zal (hall), pyl (dust), ry-bal-ka (fishing)

Before and after the transliterated vowel ‘i’, L is pronounced forward as in English: leap, feel.
