How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.
Phonotaktisches Wissen [Phonotactic Knowledge: Pre-attentive Processing of Phonological Illegality]
Zur prä-attentiven Verarbeitung phonotaktischer Illegalität
The mental organization of phonotactic knowledge and its role in language comprehension has not been adequately explained to date. Drawing on experimental physiological methods, the author offers evidence for the cognitive reality of phonotactic restrictions, thereby contributing to our understanding of how speech is processed. The book’s interdisciplinary approach will also be of interest to scholars in phonology and psycholinguistics.
