Subject: Phonology: Phonology and Language Use by J. Bybee

Phonology and Language Use
Joan Bybee, University of New Mexico, Albuquerque

Referencing new developments in cognitive and functional linguistics,
phonetics, and connectionist modeling, this book investigates various
ways in which a speaker/hearer's experience with language affects the
representation of phonology. Rather than assuming phonological
representations in terms of phonemes, Joan Bybee adopts an exemplar
model, in which specific tokens of use are stored and categorized
phonetically with reference to variables in the context. This model
allows an account of phonetically gradual sound change that produces
lexical variation, and provides an explanatory account of the fact
that many reductive sound changes affect high frequency items first.
