Title: Loan Phonology
Edited By: Andrea Calabrese
Leo Wetzels
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=CILT%20307
Series Title: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 307
Description:

For many different reasons, speakers borrow words from other languages to
fill gaps in their own lexical inventory. The past ten years have been
characterized by a great interest among phonologists in the issue of how
the nativization of loanwords occurs. The general feeling is that loanword
nativization provides a direct window for observing how acoustic cues are
categorized in terms of the distinctive features relevant to the L1
phonological system as well as for studying L1 phonological processes in
action and thus to the true synchronic phonology of L1. The collection of
essays presented in this volume provides an overview of the complex issues
phonologists face when investigating this phenomenon and, more generally,
the ways in which unfamiliar sounds and sound sequences are adapted to
converge with the native language’s sound pattern. This book is of interest
to theoretical phonologists as well as to linguists interested in language
contact phenomena.
