Book Information


Title: Voicing in Dutch
Subtitle: (De)voicing -– phonology, phonetics, and psycholinguistics
Edited By: Jeroen van de Weijer
Erik Jan van der Torre
Series Title: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 286

This volume focuses on the phonology, phonetics and psycholinguistics of
voicing-related phenomena in Dutch. Dutch phonology has played a touchstone
role in the past few decades where competing phonological theories
regarding laryngeal representation have been concerned. Debates have
focused on the phonetic facts (Is final neutralization complete or
incomplete? Are the assimilation rules phonetic or phonological?) and the
most adequate phonological analyses (Is [voice] a binary feature? What
constraints are necessary? What is the best way of implementing the role of
morphology?). This volume summarises and adds fuel to these debates on
several fronts, by providing an overview of analyses so far (rule-based as
well as constraint-based) and proposing a new one, by drawing attention to
new facts, such as exceptions to final devoicing in certain dialects and
the behaviour of loanwords, and by re-examining the phonetic state of
affairs and the behaviour of voiced, voiceless and partially devoiced
segments in psycholinguistic experiments.
