Abstract:

This is the first comprehensive account of and introduction to Chinese
phonology. It covers several areas that were previously thought to be
either absent in Chinese, or not phonological issues, e.g. stress, the
definition of the word, the word length problem, and the word order
problem. It also offers new analyses of several traditional topics,
such as the phonemic inventory, allophonic variation, syllable
structure, the [r] suffix, tone, and Tone 3 Sandhi. Unnecessary jargon
is avoided and relevant theories are introduced in a non-technical
way, so that the contents are accessible to a broad audience.
