The article considers from the phonetic point of view the different cases of dense and loose connection of morphemes in the word in Russian: phonemes in the attached service morphemes (or bases in compound words) are realized for its dense connection with neighbouring morpheme (or other basis of the same word) in the same way as inside the root (including root of compounds), with a loose connection is different than inside the root: unstressed vowels are not subject to the usual scheme of reduction and the laws of accommodation and assimilation, consonants are infl uenced by the neighbouring consonants lesser than inside the root.
