Book Information

   

Title: Phonology
Subtitle: A cognitive grammar introduction
Written By: Geoffrey S. Nathan
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=CLiP%203
Series Title: Cognitive Linguistics in Practice 3
Description:

This textbook introduces the reader to the field of phonology, from
allophones to faithfulness and exemplars. It assumes no prior knowledge of
the field, and includes a brief review chapter on phonetics. It is written
within the framework of Cognitive Linguistics, but covers a wide range of
historical and contemporary theories, from the Prague School to Optimality
Theory. While many examples are based on American and British English,
there are also discussions of some aspects of French and German colloquial
speech and phonological analysis problems from many other languages around
the world. In addition to the basics of phoneme theory, features, and
morphophonemics there are chapters on casual speech, first and second
language acquisition and historical change. A final chapter covers a number
of issues in contemporary phonological theory, including some of the
classic debates in Generative Phonology (rule ordering, abstractness,
'derivationalism') and proposals for usage-based phonologies.
