About the Authors
  • This practical and accessibly written textbook provides a thoughtfully ordered introduction to a wide range of phonological phenomena. It contains many exercises combining classic datasets with newly compiled problems. These help the student learn to discover sound patterns nested in complex linguistic data, beginning with concrete introductory examples and stepping through a series of progressively more complex phonological phenomena. It covers alternation, vowel harmony, phonemic analysis, natural classes and distinctive features, abstractness and opacity, syllable structure, tone, stress, prosodic morphology, feature geometry, and optimality theory. It is essential reading for students of linguistics around the world.

    • Fully up to date and incorporates all recent theory
    • Includes more data sets than comparable books
    • Text and comment is interspersed between exercises so the book can stand alone as an adoptable main course text in its own right
    • Further resources are available on an accompanying website
