Title: Optimality-Theoretic Studies in Spanish Phonology
Edited By: Fernando Martínez-Gil
Sonia Colina
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=LA%2099
Series Title: Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today 99
Description:

This outstanding volume offers the first comprehensive collection of
optimality-theoretic studies in Spanish phonology. Bringing together most
of the best-known researchers in the field, it presents a state-of-the-art
overview of research in Spanish phonology within the non-derivational
framework of optimality theory. The book is structured around six major
areas of phonological research: phonetics-phonology interface, segmental
phonology, syllable structure and stress, morphophonology, language
variation and change, and language acquisition, including general as well
as more specialized articles. The reader is guided through the volume with
the help of the introduction and a detailed index. The book will serve as
core reading for advanced graduate-level phonology courses and seminars in
Spanish linguistics, and in general linguistics phonology courses. It will
also constitute an essential reference for researchers in phonology,
phonological theory, and Spanish, and related areas, such as language
acquisition, bilingualism, education, and speech and hearing science.
