Lexical Phonology and the History of English

April McMahon, University of Sheffield

This book analyzes some differences among English, Scottish and American
accents of English, and shows how they developed and why they have their
current form. Although the revised version of lexical phonology presented here
is intended to describe present-day patterns, it can also show how historical
sound changes gave rise to these patterns.

Contents:

Acknowledgements; 1. The role of history; 
		 2. Constraining the model: 
		 current controversies in lexical phonology; 
		 3. Applying the constraints: 
		 the modern English vowel shift rule; 
		 4. Synchrony, diachrony and lexical phonology: 
		 the Scottish vowel length rule; 
		 5. Dialect differentiation in lexical phonology: 
		 the unwelcome effects of underspecification; 
		 6. English/r/; 
		 Bibliography.

Subject: The Phonological Structure of Words, C.J.Ewen & H. van der Hulst


The Phonological Structure of Words
An Introduction

Colin J. Ewen, University of Leiden
Harry van der Hulst, University of Leiden and Holland Institute of
Generative Linguistics

This book is designed to provide students of phonology with an accessible
introduction to the phonological architecture of words. It offers a thorough
discussion of the basic building blocks of phonology--in particular features,
sounds, syllables and feet--and deals with a range of different theories about
these units. The book provides a more detailed analysis of this subject than
previously available in introductory textbooks and is an invaluable and
indispensable first step toward understanding the major theoretical issues in
modern phonology at the word level.

Contents:

1. Segments; 2. Features; 3. Syllables; 4. Feet and words.
