Title: The Phonological Structure of Words
Subtitle: An Introduction
Written By: Colin Ewen
Harry van der Hulst
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521350190
Series Title: Cambridge Textbooks in Linguistics
Description:

This book is designed to provide students of phonology with an accessible introduction to the phonological architecture of words. It offers a thorough discussion of the basic building blocks of phonology - in particular features, sounds, syllables and feet - and deals with a range of different theories about these units. Colin Ewen and Harry van der Hulst present their study within a non-linear framework, discussing the contributions of autosegmental phonology, dependency phonology, government phonology and metrical phonology, among others. Their coherent, integrated approach reveals that the differences between these models are not as great as is sometimes believed. The book provides a more detailed analysis of this subject than previously available in introductory textbooks and is an invaluable and indispensable first step towards understanding the major theoretical issues in modern phonology at the word level. ::::: ~This publication is a welcome addition to that series and to the literature of phonology, covering theoretical issues at the level of the word.~ Child Language Teaching and Therapy
