Phonology : Theory and Description, Paperback Book

Phonology : Theory and Description Paperback

Part of the Introducing Linguistics series


Aimed principally at the undergraduate student, this exciting new textbook provides a compact presentation of the fundamental concepts of phonology.

The four main themes-syllable structure, feature structure, rules and stress/ rhythm include illuminating references to a variety of languages.

No previous knowledge of contemporary phonological theory is assumed beyond that found in a typical first year introductory course, and each chapter includes helpful exercises and further reading.

This colume is an essential text for students of linguistics, English language and speech sciences.
