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.

Hans Basbøll

This book presents Jørgen Rischel's most important work on language and
sound structure. It includes some of the most original and groundbreaking
research of four decades. The chapters focus on stress, syllabification,
accent, and vowel harmony, and their interactions with other aspects of
language. They include exemplary descriptions of the sound systems of a
wide range of languages, cover both synchronic and diachronic analysis, and
reflect the authors lifelong interest in typology. The book will interest
phonologists, phoneticians, and language typologists throughout the world.
