Abstract:

Principles of Generative Phonology is a basic, thorough introduction
to phonological theory and practice. It aims to provide a firm
foundation in the theory of distinctive features, phonological rules
and rule ordering, which is essential to be able to appreciate recent
developments and discussions in phonological theory. Chapter 1 is a
review of phonetics; chapter 2 discusses contrast and distribution,
with emphasis on rules as the mechanism for describing distributions;
chapter 3 introduces distinctive features, natural classes, and
redundancy; chapter 4 builds on the concept of rules and shows how
these can account for alternations; chapter 5 demonstrates the use of
rule ordering; chapter 6 discusses abstractness and underlying
representations; chapter 7 discusses post-SPE developments, serving as
a prelude to more advanced texts. Each chapter includes excercises to
guide the student in the application of the principles introduced in
that chapter and to encourage thinking about theoretical issues. The
text has been classroom tested.
