Letter Writing and Language Change

Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."

Title: Voicing in Japanese
Edited By: Jeroen van de Weijer
Kensuke Nanjo
Tetsuo Nishihara
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/rs/bookSingle.cfm?id=IS-3110186004-1&l=E
Series Title: Studies in Generative Grammar 84
Description:

This book presents a number of studies which focus on the [voice] grammar
of Japanese, paying particular attention to historical background,
dialectal diversity, phonetic experiment, and phonological analysis. Both
voicing processes in consonants (such as Sequential Voicing, or Rendaku)
and vowels (such as vowel devoicing) are examined.

A number of new analyses are presented, focusing on well-known data that
have been controversial in phonological debate in the past, but also
presenting new (or rediscovered) data, partly through the work of Japanese
scholars that hitherto went mostly unnoticed, partly through new database
research, and partly through phonetic experiment.

Jeroen van de Weijer is Lecturer in linguistics at Leiden University, The
Netherlands. He specialises in phonological theory, especially with regard
to segmental representation and with a keen interest in laryngeal features.

Kensuke Nanjo is Associate Professor of Phonetics at St. Andrew's
University in Japan. His interests include English and Japanese phonetics
and phonology, lexicography, accents of English, and the acquisition of
English by Japanese learners.

Tetsuo Nishihara is Lecturer of English at the Miyagi University of
Education, with a particular interest in English and Japanese phonology,
especially with regard to prosodic phonology and phonology-morphology
intereaction.
