Abstract:

A comprehensive empirical analysis of the major truncatory patterns in
English. Complete with a critical evaluation of pertinent theories in the
light of known empirical facts. Contains a broad coverage of structural
aspects, including segmental, phonotactic, and suprasegmental.

Linguistic academics and speech therapists will find here the first modern
book-length empirical study and theoretical account of English truncatory
processes. On the basis of a corpus comprising some 3000 derivatives, the
book provides a systematic investigation of the structural properties of
six different patterns of English name truncation and word clipping. All
patterns are shown to be unique in terms of the structural requirements
that they impose on their outputs.

Linguistic Field(s): Morphology
                            Phonology
