Polish and Russian are typologically related Slavic languages that have highly comparable nominal morphology within their gender and case systems in their written form. In their spoken form, however, they show crucial differences, specifically in the phonetic realisation of unstressed vowels. They thus form an ideal combination for testing language-specific phonetic factors that might influence the acquisition of gender and case systems. Bibi Jansen studies the acquisition of these systems in bilingual and monolingual Polish and Russian-speaking children to establish the impact of language specific factors.
