Description:

The papers included in the volume Phonetics and Phonology: Interactions

are concerned with some of the multiple possible
forms of interactions and interrelations in phonetics and phonology: the
phonetic and/or phonological nature of speech patterns, segmental and
prosodic interactions, and interactions between segments and features, both
in child and in adult language, combining perception and production data,
and doing so from theoretically as well as experimentally oriented
perspectives. The book is unique in the universe of recent publications for
its topic, wide scope and coherent thematic content. It is of interest to
all researchers, teachers and students in the fields of phonetics and
phonology as well as to those interested in the interplay between
production and perception, the organization of grammar and language
typology. In general, Phonetics and Phonology. Interactions and
interrelations
may be a useful companion to all those wishing to widen
and deepen their knowledge of the sound structure of language(s).
