Title: Segmental and Prosodic Issues in Romance Phonology

Series Title: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 282
Description:

This volume is a collection of cutting-edge research papers written by
well-known researchers in the field of Romance phonetics and phonology. An
important goal of this book is to bridge the gap between traditional
Romance linguistics - with its long and rich tradition in data collection,
cross-language comparison, and phonetic variation - and laboratory
phonology work. The book is organized around three main themes: segmental
processes, prosody, and the acquisition of segments and prosody. The
various articles provide new empirical data on production, perception,
sound change, first and second language learning, rhythm and intonation,
presenting a state-of-the-art overview of research in laboratory phonology
centred on Romance languages. The Romance data are used to test the
predictions of a number of theoretical frameworks such as gestural
phonology, exemplar models, generative phonology and optimality theory. The
book will constitute a useful companion volume for phoneticians,
phonologists and researchers investigating sound structure in Romance
languages, and will serve to generate further interest in laboratory phonology.
