Title: Phonology: Theory and Description
Written By: Andrew Spencer
Description:

Aimed principally at the undergraduate student, this new textbook provides
a compact presentation of the fundamental concepts of phonological
analysis, and at the same time shows how the phonological system of English
can be illuminated by such concepts. It bridges the gap between purely
theoretical accounts and purely descriptive accounts of English. The topics
covered include syllable structure, distinctive features, phonological
processes and domains, stress and rhythm, and lexical (morphophonemic)
alternations. Each chapter is based largely on English, or is followed by a
chapter on the relevant aspects of English phonology. No previous knowledge
of contemporary phonological theory or the structure of English is assumed
beyond that found in a typical first year course. Each chapter is provided
with exercises.
