Papers in Laboratory Phonology V^L
Language Acquisition and the Lexicon

Michael Broe, The Ohio State University, Columbus
Janet Pierrehumbert, Northwestern University, Evanston, IL

Papers in Laboratory Phonology V sets two new themes: language
acquisition and lexical representation. Contributors tackle the
central problem of what constitutes a possible word in generative
phonology, employing contemporary approaches such as Optimality
Theory, connectionism, and stochastic grammars. Several papers
integrate the issues of lexical representation and language
acquisition by undertaking to explain the organization of the adult
phonologicalsystem as the end product of the acquisition process. This
timely collection will be of interest to a wide range of researchers
in phonetics, phonology, psycholinguistics, and the study of speech

A Guide to the Use of the International Phonetic Alphabet

"This is an excellent book for speech clinicians, language teachers,
and researchers.">-Dorothy Haubner, ASHA Review

This book is a comprehensive guide to the International Phonetic
Alphabet, widely used for over a century to transcribe the sounds of
languages. The Handbook is in three parts: Part I contains an
introduction to phonetic description and exemplification of the use of
phonetic symbols; Part II consists of twenty-nine "Illustrations" of
the application of the International PhoneticAlphabet to a range of
languages; and Part III covers speech pathology, computer codings, and
the history of the IPA. This is an essential reference work for
phoneticians and linguists more generally.


Part I. Introduction to the IPA: 1. What is the International Phonetic
Alphabet? 2. Phonetic description and the IPA Chart; 3. Guide to IPA
notation; 4. The phonemic principle; 5. Broad and narrow
transcriptions; 6. IPA transcriptions for a language; 7. Working with
the IPA; 8. Going beyond the IPA; 9. Some problematic issues; 10. The
IPA and phonological theory; Part II. Illustrations of the IPA; Part
III. Appendices.

Theory, Data and Techniques

William J. Hardcastle, Queen Margaret College, Edinburgh
Nigel Hewlett, Queen Margaret College, Edinburgh

Coarticulation means the overlapping gestures that occur during the
pronunciation of any sequence of speech sounds. This topic in the
science of phonetics provides a challenge to speech production theory
as well as to various projects in the field of speech technology,
including that of building a natural sounding speech synthesizer. The
eighteen chapters in this book cover the experimental techniques used
for investigating the phenomenon, the experimental findings to date,
and the theoretical background.

Subject: Morphology & Phonology: Lexical strata in English, H. J. Giegerich

Lexical Strata in English
Morphological Causes, Phonological Effects

Heinz J. Giegerich, University of Edinburgh

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

Table of Contents:

A note of thanks; 1. A requiem for lexical phonology?; 2. Affix-driven
stratification: the grand illusion; 3. Principles of base-driven
stratification; 4. Deriving the strict cyclicity effect; 5. Phonology
and the literate speaker: orthography in lexical phonology;
6. [r]-sandhi and liaison in RP; 7. Input vowels to [r]-sandhi: RP and
London English; 8. Syllables and strata; List of references; Index.
