Abstract:

This book is the most complete phonology of contemporary Polish ever
published. It is topic-oriented and presents the fundamental
characteristics and problems associated with each topic, among them
syllable structure, vowel-zero alternations, palatalizations, and other
vowel and consonant changes. Professor Gussmann re-examines assumptions
about phonological contrasts and alternations, and raises and addresses
central questions in morphophonology. He takes morphophonology to be
systematically separate from phonology. Palatalizations, he shows, are
crucial to Polish, as both phonological and morphophonological phenomena:
their detailed description leads him to a systematic presentation of
vocalic alternations.

The book develops a Government Phonology account of Polish, but is
primarily a description of the language with the model subordinated to the
organization of data. All the many examples used to illustrate the
presentation are transcribed in standard IPA, and translated. This
important book will interest all scholars and advanced students of Polish
and Slavic phonology.
