It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

It's Been Said Before "examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided -- or why they still have life left in them."

Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: Optimality-Theoretic Studies in Spanish Phonology
Edited By: Fernando Martínez-Gil
Sonia Colina
Series Title: Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today 99

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.
