Subject: Phonology: Whose German? by Orrin W. Robinson

John Benjamins Publishing announces a new work in German phonology, with 
historical aspects.

Whose German?
The ach/ich alternation and related phenomena in 'standard' and 'colloquial'.

The author addresses a number of issues in German and general
phonology, using a specific problem in German phonology (the ach/ich
alternation) as a springboard. These issues include especially the
naturalness, or lack thereof, of the prescriptive standard in German,
and the importance of colloquial pronunciations, as well as historical
and dialect evidence, for phonological analyses of the "standard"
language. Other important topics include the phonetic and phonological
status of German /r/, the phonetic and phonological representation of
palatals, the status of loanwords in phonological description, and,
especially as regards the latter, the usefulness of Optimality Theory
in capturing phonological facts. The book addresses itself to
scholars from the fields of German and Germanic linguistics, as well
as those concerned more generally with theoretical phonology (whether
Lexical or Optimal). It may even appeal to the ortho�pists and
lexicographers of modern German.
