 Abstract:
 
 This book analyzes 153 languages from a large variety of families to
 establish a previously unexplored relationship between phonetically
 conditioned sound changes such as lenitions and functional (meaning
 'maintenance related') considerations. Carefully collecting numerous
 inventories of consonants, this collection is likely to become an
 important resource for future linguistics research. By distinguishing 
 between phonetic and phonological neutralization, and showing that
 the first does not necessarily result in the second, Naomi Gurevich
 uncovers previously unexplored and often surprising trends in the
 relationship between phonetics and phonology.
