Title: Principles of Dependency Phonology
Written By: John M. Anderson
Colin Ewen
Series Title: Cambridge Studies in Linguistics 47
Description:

Note: This is the re-issue of a previously published book.

John Anderson and Colin Ewen, two of the most notable exponents of
'dependency phonology', present in this book a detailed account of this
integrated model for the representational of segmental and suprasegmental
structure in phonology. Dependency phonology departs from traditional
'linear' models of phonology, and the more recent non-linear models of
autosegmental and metrical phonology, in several respects. Unlike in these
models, suprasegmental structure is derived directly from the segmental
representations, and these representations are based on single-valued
features, or components (rather than Chomsky and Halle-type binary
features), linked by the dependency relation to form suprasegmental
structures, with the exact nature of the dependency relations being
directly determined by the properties of the segmental structure. Phonology
is currently noteworthy for the diversity of views within the discipline,
but no linguist or phonetician with a serious interest in phonology can
afford to ignore this book or fail to be interested by it.
