DESCRIPTION

This book is an introduction to phonological theory placed within the framework of recent mainstream generative phonology. The book is divided into two main parts. The first introduces readers to basic concepts of articulatory phonetics, classical phonemics and standard generative phonology. The second part is devoted to phonological theory. The nature and organisation of phonological representations in nonlinear generative phonology is also explored.
