Abstract:

The book is the most comprehensive account of the phonology of Danish ever
published in any language. It gives a clear analysis of the sound patterns
of modern Danish and examines the relations between its speech sounds and
grammar. The author develops new models for the analysis of phonology and
morphology-phonology interactions, and shows how these may be applied to
Danish and to other languages.

Danish has an unusually rich vowel system and exhibits radical reduction
processes that make it difficult for foreigners to understand. The sound
pattern is equally challenging for the analyst. Professor Basbøll develops
a non-circular model for the sonority syllable and applies it to Danish
phonotactics. He presents a radically new and insightful analysis of stød,
a syllable accent which has a complex grammatical distribution and is
unique among the world's languages. He also describes syllabic and word
structures, and stress and intonation.

The book is fully referenced and indexed. It will be widely welcomed by
phonologists and scholars of Danish, and is likely to become the standard
account of Danish phonology.
