Book Information


Title: Phonetics, Phonology, and Cognition
Edited By: Jacques Durand
Bernard Laks
Series Title: Oxford Studies in Theoretical Linguistics

This volume demonstrates that phonology is a subsystem of the mind/brain and explores the theoretical and practical (including medical) consequences of this insight. Written by American and European specialists at the cutting-edge of research in areas ranging from phonetics to neurology, the book addresses central questions relating to the cognitive status of phonological representation and phonetic implementation and the links between mental and physical representation of sound systems.
