Sociolinguistics from the Periphery "presents a fascinating book about change: shifting political, economic and cultural conditions; ephemeral, sometimes even seasonal, multilingualism; and altered imaginaries for minority and indigenous languages and their users"
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.
