PHONOLOGICAL KNOWLEDGE: Conceptual and Empirical Issues
Edited by Noel Burton-Roberts, University of Newcastle upon Tyne, 
Philip Carr, University Paul Valery (Montpellier III), France,
and Gerard Docherty, University of Newcastle upon Tyne

This volume concerns the nature, status, and acquisition of
phonological knowledge, and its place in, or relation to, the theory
of language and other capacities of mind. The contributions are
written by well-known linguists and phonologists and address a wide
range of interrelated issues: for example, whether phonology is
'different' from the rest of language; the implications of sign
language; the nature-convention debate; and the data and methods of
phonology. Of interest to researchers in phonology, linguistics, and
psychology, the volume will also appeal to postgraduates and advanced
undergraduates in linguistics.
