Abstract:

This book provides an overview of the phonology of Italian. It covers the
different levels of analysis from individual sounds up to the phrasal
level. It focuses on the most widely dispersed features of the language
reflecting its significant regional and social variation and its most
prominent regionally restricted patterns.

Martin Krämer provides a critical survey of the generative literature on
Italian phonology. He reports on current debates in the field, considers
their particular and general theoretical interest, and provides both
syntheses and original analyses. His accounts of the main aspects and
characteristics of Italian phonology are couched in the framework of
Optimality Theory, but he keeps formal aspects and theory-internal matters
to a minimum and separate from the presentation and description of the
data. His exposition is thus fully accessible to students and researchers
who are not familiar with or do not subscribe to the tenets of the theory.
Individual chapters may thus serve as starting points for in-depth
investigations into particular aspects of Italian phonology in whatever
framework the reader chooses to employ.

The Phonology of Italian is the first fully comprehensive account of its
subject for many years. It will interest scholars and advanced students of
Italian, Romance phonology, and phonology as a system.
