 Abstract:
 
 This skillfully written text provides a broad, yet up-to-date, introduction
 to phonology. Assuming no previous knowledge of phonology or linguistic
 theory, the authors introduce the basic concepts and build on these
 progressively, discussing the main theories and illustrating key points
 with carefully chosen examples. A wide range of phenomena are covered:
 speech production, segmental contrasts, tone, quantity, prosodic structure,
 metrical relations and intonation. The main theories, including feature
 geometry and Optimality Theory are introduced, and their contributions to
 our understanding of phonology, as well as their shortcomings, are
 discussed objectively.
 
 In this new edition the authors have revised and updated the text in the
 light of recent research and also as a result of users' comments.
 
 Students will welcome the range of language from which the authors draw
 their examples and problems, and the originality of the presentations,
 discussions and examples.
