About the Authors
  • Heinz Giegerich investigates the way in which alternations in the sound patterns of words interact with the processes of word formation in the language. Drawing examples from English and German, he uncovers and spells out in detail the principles of "lexical morphology and phonology," a theory that has in recent years become increasingly influential in linguistics. He queries many of the assumptions previously made in it to produce a formally coherent theory that offers new accounts of some central phenomena in the phonology of English.

    • Offers a formally coherent theory of the interaction of phonological and morphological processes
    • Explains on principled grounds the organization of the morphology of English
    • Shows how such organization facilitates new analyses of a number of important phonological processes in English
