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.

Title: Laryngeal Cooccurrence Restrictions
Written By: Margaret R. Maceachern

This study presents an analysis of laryngeal cooccurrence restrictions within an Optimality Theory framework. The languages examined here include uechua, Aymara, Basque, Sanskrit, Ofo, Gojri, Old Georgian, Hausa, Tzutujil, and Shuswap. In each of these languages, particular segments are prohibited from cooccurring within the morpheme or word.

The book will be of interest to phonologists concerned with word- or morpheme-level cooccurrence restrictions, the Obligatory Contour Principle, or Optimality Theory.
