Title: Introducing Phonology
Written By: David Odden
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=9780521826693
Series Title: Cambridge Introductions to Language and Linguistics
Description:

This accessible textbook provides a clear and practical introduction to
phonology, the study of sound patterns in language. Designed for students
with only a basic knowledge of linguistics, it teaches in a step-by-step
fashion the logical techniques of phonological analysis and the fundamental
theories that underpin it. Through over sixty graded exercises, students
are encouraged to make their own analyses of phonological patterns and
processes, based on extensive data and problems sets from a wide variety of
languages. Introducing Phonology equips students with the essential
analytical skills needed for further study in the field, such as how to
think critically and discover generalizations about data, how to formulate
hypotheses, and how to test them. Providing a solid foundation in both the
theory and practice of phonology, it is set to become the leading text for
any introductory course, and will be invaluable to all students beginning
to study the discipline.
