 Human language is a remarkable phenomenon. Its study continues to be a 
 source of fascination and delight. Dr. Donald Burquest, professor of 
 linguistics at the University of Texas at Arlington, developed this 
 foundational textbook during years of helping students overcome the 
 feelings of dismay that new phonology students experience when 
 confronted by a mass of raw phonetic data. While working through the 
 material, the student is led through the steps of organizing data and 
 is introduced to particular theories for later in-depth 
 specialization. The author expands on the previous edition of this 
 text by adding introductions to Autosegmental Phonology and Metrical 
 Phonology. He has also included a series of problems at the end of 
 most chapters that provide an opportunity for the student to apply the 
 information in that chapter. This textbook is intended for use in an 
 upper division introductory course in phonology, preparing the student 
 to further study aspects of current theory.
