Abstract:

This textbook presupposes no prior knowledge of phonology or
phonetics, and takes the learner step by step through the various
stages and areas of the discipline without sacrificing rigor or
breadth of coverage. The book's extraordinary clarity makes it readily
understandable by anyone with a keen interest in phonology.

The substance of phonology is more constant and more general than the
limitations inherent in any particular theory or formalism may
suggest. The book therefore provides a coherent account for
beginner-students, rooted primarily - but by no means exclusively - in
the phonology of English. No particular theory or formal apparatus is
preferred over another; instead, the essence of phonology is provided
in the most neutral possible way, for the maximum benefit of the
reader. The book avoids entanglement in doctrinal disputes and formal
minutiae, and aims instead for the general and the permanent.

The book reviews all the major advances that have taken place in
generative phonology over the past thirty years, including the recent
Optimality Theory. Its many pedagogical features encourage interaction
with the reader, and include a wealth of check-points, chapter
previews and summaries, lists of key points, and exercises for further
practice.
