A small number of masculine soft stem nouns have the same exceptional form, which is listed under soft masculines. 54 C. Neuter Nouns There are three major phonological subtypes of neuter nouns, analogous to the three-way split of masculine zero nouns: hard non-velar, velar, and soft. The cases which are sensitive to stem-finals are the Nsg. and Lsg. The hard non-velar type has both Nsg.

Since the terms hard and soft are often used, but seldom defined adequately, a few comments on this topic are in order. Phonetically speaking, soft consonants are those which have a higher frequency, or tonality, and which manifest a tongue position which fills most of the space immediately below the palate. For Polish, these include the palatalized and palatal consonants [p’, b’, f’, v’, m’, ś, ź, ć, dź, ń, j], all of which can appear in the stem-final position.

Closed position refers to a syllable which ends in a consonant. Conversely, an open syllable is one which ends in a vowel. In the two Polish alternations based on this factor, two vowels are commonly found in open position ([o, ę]), due to a vocalic ending. However, when a zero ending is used instead, their syllable becomes closed and there is commonly encountered alternation to [u, ą], respectively.
