 Abstract:
 
 The Coursebook in Feature Geometry is an undergraduate course introducing
 students to current phonology through a sustained use of the Feature
 Geometry framework. It is written as a coherent, accessible, and
 well-illustrated introduction to the key ideas of Feature Geometry,
 focusing on rules of assimilation. In its 20 units and 40 exercises, it
 takes the reader step-by-step through the representational devices of
 Feature Geometry.  
 
 The Coursebook attempts to present the core ideas of Feature Geometry in a
 unified way, rather than attempting to incorporate the (considerable)
 debate concerning almost every aspect of the theory. 
 
 The version of Feature Geometry underlying the Coursebook is basically that
 found in Sagey's The Representation of features in non-linear phonology
 (1990), revised in accordance with the claims of Lahiri and Evans' 1991
 article on Palatalization and coronality.
 
 The author is Senior Lecturer in the Department of Linguistics and Second
 Language Teaching, Massey University, New Zealand. The author has a PhD in
 linguistics from the University of California at San Diego.
