This volume contains revised, expanded and updated versions of papers
originally presented at the International Workshop on Phonological
Structure held at the University of Durham in September 1994. As the
title suggests, the contributions focus on aspects of phonological
structure, both segment internal and suprasegmental.

A number of questions surrounding phonological structure are
approached from a wide variety of theoretical standpoints, including
the frameworks of prosodic phonology, declarative phonology,
optimality theory, metrical phonology, government phonology, feature
geometry, particle theory and dependency phonology. This range of
viewpoints allows the crossfertilisation of various strands of
phonological thinking with respect to many of the central issues
concerning phonological structure. The empirical basis of the
contributions is also wide-ranging, including among the languages
dealt with Aranda, Cayuvava, English, French, Hungarian, Italian,
Japanese, Mandarin, and Spanish.
