The Phrase Phonology of English and French, Hardback Book

The Phrase Phonology of English and French Hardback


This work, first published in 1980, was a doctoral dissertation submitted to the Department of Foreign Literatures and Linguistics of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1972.

This study concerns certain aspects of the relationship between syntax and phonology in English and French.

In particular, it represents an investigation of the universal conventions and language-particular readjustment rules which create the proper surface structure input to the phonological rules operating beyond the level of the word in French and English, and it offers a description of those phonological rules.

This title will be of interest to students of language and linguistics.
