Title: The development of J. R. Firth's phonological views in the 1930s
Author: John S. Coleman
Homepage: http://www.phon.ox.ac.uk/~jcoleman
Institution: University of Oxford
Linguistic Field: Phonetics; Phonology
Abstract: Battaner-Moro (2003), a paper presented at the 15th International Congress of the Phonetic Sciences, advances several erroneous claims concerning J. R. Firth's contributions to prosodic phonology. In this note, I show that the central aspects of Firth's phonological thinking were already manifest in his publications from the 1930s.
