This textbook is a clear and concise introduction to phonology that assumes no prior knowledge and provides an overall view of the field which can be covered within a year. It also does not confine itself to any specific theoretical approach. Each chapter focuses on a particular set of theoretical issues including segments, syllables, feet, and phonological processing. Gussmann explores these areas using data drawn from a variety of languages including English, Icelandic, Russian, Irish, Finnish, Turkish, and others.
