Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: Proceedings of the UBC International Conference On Phonological Acquisition
Edited By: Barbara Bernhardt
John Gilbert
David E. Ingram

The Proceedings of the UBC Conference on Phonological Acquisition contain 23 papers from the conference, organized into sections on feature acquisition, prosodic structure acquisition, interactions of prosodic and segmental tiers in acquisition, and instrumentation in phonological analysis. The volume is a significant addition to the literature on phonological acquisition, both in data and in theoretical treatment. The authors consider new data from a number of languages, focusing on the major period of phonological acquisition in production. The intended audience includes phonologists, speech-language pathologists, and phoneticians interested in developmental phonology, disordered phonology, and general theoretical topics in phonology, particularly current theories such as Optimality Theory.
