About the Authors
  • This accessible textbook provides a clear and practical introduction to phonology, the study of sound patterns in language. Designed for undergraduates with only a basic knowledge of linguistics, it logically develops the techniques of phonological analysis. Over sixty graded exercises encourage students to make their own analyses of phonological patterns and processes, based on extensive data and problem sets from a variety of languages.

    • Accessibly written, assuming no prior knowledge of phonology or phonetics
    • Equips students with the essential analytical skills needed for further study in phonology
    • Contains over sixty graded exercises based on a variety of data, with further exercises, useful links and password protected solutions on the accompanying web site
