K.P. Mohanan, Dept. of Linguistics, Stanford University, CA, USA:
THE THEORY OF LEXICAL PHONOLOGY. In this paperback reprint
Mohanan outlines that the theory of lexical phonology has its
roots in the tradition of both SPE phonology and classical
phonemics. The central question addressed concerns the nature of
the relation between phonological, morphological and syntactic
processes. The focus shifts from the rules themselves to the
properties of the (lexical, syntactic, and post-syntactic)
modules in which the rules apply. The result is a theory that
represents an advancement in the tradition of generative
phonology. 228 pp. 90-277-2227-7. Kluwer Academic Publishers,

 Algonkian to Arapaho; Cloth 0-7735-1171-7; 160pp.; $55.00; McGill-
 Queen's Univ Press. -- Arapaho, a western Algonkian language, is
 still spoken on the Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming.
 Phonologically modern Arapaho looks very "un-Algonkian", for it
 has undergone a rather startling number of sound changes. In this
 study Picard attempts to use the phonological history of Arapaho
 as a vehicle to explore various possibilities for making accurate
 inferences about the chronological order of sound changes. His
 ultimate goal is to provide a methodology that can be applied
 successfully to other languages that, like Arapaho, have no
 recorded history.

The `Yearbook of Morphology 1993' focuses on Prosodic Morphology,
i.e the interaction between morphological and prosodic structure
on the semantics of word formation, and on a number of related
issues in the realm of inflection: the structure of paradigms,
the relation between inflection and word formation, and patterns
of language change with respect to inflection. There is also
discussion of the relevance of the notion `level ordering' for
morphological generalizations. All theoretical and historical
linguists, morphologists, and phonologists will want to read this
