The article starts from describing phonological variables and their identifiable variants. It concentrates on finding a convincing explanation and justification for the selection of particular phonological realizations. Due to the influence of such factors as the region, social settings, speech style and linguistic context, one can spot the variability in speech which contributes to speech alternations and the development of a number of variants.
