Title: Where Do Phonological Features Come From?
Subtitle: Cognitive, physical and developmental bases of distinctive speech categories
Edited By: G. Nick Clements
Rachid Ridouane
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/lfab.6
Series Title: Language Faculty and Beyond 6
Description:

This volume offers a timely reconsideration of the function, content, and origin
of phonological features, in a set of papers that is theoretically diverse yet
thematically strongly coherent. Most of the papers were originally presented at
the International Conference "Where Do Features Come From?" held at the
Sorbonne University, Paris, October 4-5, 2007. Several invited papers are
included as well. The articles discuss issues concerning the mental status of
distinctive features, their role in speech production and perception, the relation
they bear to measurable physical properties in the articulatory and
acoustic/auditory domains, and their role in language development. Multiple
disciplinary perspectives are explored, including those of general linguistics,
phonetic and speech sciences, and language acquisition. The larger goal was to
address current issues in feature theory and to take a step towards synthesizing
recent advances in order to present a current "state of the art" of the field.
