Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain.

Title: The Cambridge Handbook of Phonology
Edited By: Paul V. de Lacy
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/us/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=9780521848794
Description:

Phonology - the study of how the sounds of speech are represented in our
minds - is one of the core areas of linguistic theory, and is central to
the study of human language. This state-of-the-art handbook brings together
the world’s leading experts in phonology to present the most comprehensive
and detailed overview of the field to date. Focusing on the most recent
research and the most influential theories, the authors discuss each of the
central issues in phonological theory, explore a variety of empirical
phenomena, and show how phonology interacts with other aspects of language
such as syntax, morphology, phonetics, and language acquisition. Providing
a one-stop guide to every aspect of this important field, The Cambridge
Handbook of Phonology will serve as an invaluable source of readings for
advanced undergraduate and graduate students, an informative overview for
linguists, and a useful starting point for anyone beginning phonological
research.
