Series Title: Phonology and Phonetics [PP] 13
Description:

This book takes contrast, an issue that has been central to phonological
theory since Saussure, as its central theme, making explicit its importance
to phonological theory, perception, and acquisition. The volume brings
together a number of different contemporary approaches to the theory of
contrast, including chapters set within more abstract representation-based
theories, as well as chapters that focus on functional phonetic theories
and perceptual constraints. This book will be of interest to phonologists,
phoneticians, psycholinguists, researchers in first and second language
acquisition, and cognitive scientists interested in current thinking on
this exciting topic.
