Title: Cognitive Phonology in Construction Grammar
Subtitle: Analytic Tools for Students of English
Written By: Riitta Välimaa-Blum
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/rs/bookSingle.cfm?id=IS-311018608X-1&l=E
Series Title: Mouton Textbook
Description:

This textbook is an accessible introduction to both English phonology and
phonology in general. It analyzes some central phenomena of the sound
system of two standard varieties of English, Southern British English and
General American. The framework adopted is Cognitive Linguistics and
Construction Grammar, and this entails in particular that all the elements
of the sound system are tightly interwoven with the meaningful units:
morphemes, words, phrases and sentences. The book contains chapters on
articulatory phonetics, sounds and meaning, alternation patterns, word
stress and intonation. Each chapter ends with an invitation to analyze
English and other languages with the tools of Cognitive Linguistics.

The book is designed for students as well as teachers of English and
linguistics, and while the target readership should already have a
background in linguistics, a beginner in phonology will find all the basic
concepts clearly defined.

RIITTA VÄLIMAA-BLUM is Associate Professor at the Université de Nice, France.

Of interest to: Students and Teachers of Cognitive Linguistics, General
Linguistics, Phonology, Phonetics, Morphology, Construction Grammar,
English Studies and Language Studies in General; Research Libraries and
University Libraries in General (Humanities).
