Title: Handbook of the Syllable
Edited By: Charles E. Cairns
Eric Raimy
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=210&pid=42226
Series Title: Brill's Handbooks in Linguistics
Description:

The Handbook of the Syllable approaches the study of the phonology and
phonetics of the syllable with theoretical, empirical and methodological
heterogeneity as its guiding principle. Since the mid-nineteenth century,
scholars in the phonetic and phonological sciences have found it convenient
to refer to the syllable, but definitions are scarce and none apply to all
areas where the syllable is frequently invoked. The Handbook’s seventeen
chapters focus on empirical studies of the syllable by presenting both new
data and new kinds of data. The work addresses the syllable in phonology,
phonetics, experimental psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, diachronic
linguistics, and orthography. It is a seminal reference book for
researchers exploring any empirical area where the notion of “the syllable”
is invoked.
