Abstract:
			
This book is the first detailed investigation and description of
phonotactic sound patterns affecting Khoesan click consonant
inventories. It also includes the first quantitative study of
phonation types in Khoesan languages, and the first study of phonation
types associated with pharyngeal consonants all around. Although bases
of OCP constraints have been presumed to be perceptual, this is the
first quantitative study showing the acoustic basis of a particular
OCP constraint in a specific language.

Amanda L. Miller-Ockhuizen describes the phonetics and phonology of
gutturals in the Khoesan language of Ju|'hoansi. Hers is the first
study of voice quality cues associated with epiglottalized
vowels. Thus, it is the first study to show that laryngeal and
pharyngeal vowels are unified phonetically by non-modal voice
qualities associated with them. It is also the first study to show
that in addition to laryngeal coarticulation, whereby voice quality
cues associated with laryngeal consonants are spread to a following
vowel, pharyngeal coarticulation also involves spreading of voice
quality cues. Thus, guttural consonants are united in that they all
spread voice quality cues onto a following vowel. Voice quality cues
found on vowels following guttural consonants are as large as similar
cues associated with guttural vowels. This acoustic similarity is
shown to be the basis of a novel Guttural OCP constraint found in the
language, which is demonstrated to exist via co-occurrence patterns
found over a recorded database of all of the known roots. Thus, this
is the first book to provide a detailed perceptual basis of an OCP
constraint. The database study also reports several other novel
phonotactic constraints involving gutturals, as well as a reanalysis
of the well-known Back Vowel Constraint.

This book describes both phonetics and phonology of the natural class
of guttural consonants, and shows through a quantitative acoustic
investigation how the phonetic cues associated with these sounds are
the bases of phonotactic constraints involving them.

Abstract:

In linguistic study, tone is usually equated with pitch. Andrea Pham
argues that this view of tone is problematic. Her acoustic analysis of
tone in Vietnamese uses data from various speakers to show that the
phonation features of breathiness and creakiness correlate much more
closely with tonal perceptions than pitch height alone. This finding
resolves what has long been regarded as a serious contradiction
between the phonetics of certain Vietnamese tones and their
phonological status. This new book offers research that will affect
further study of tone in Vietnamese and other tonal languages.
