  • The Phonology of the World's Languages

The Phonology of the World's Languages RSS


Each volume in the series is devoted to the phonology of a single language. After a chapter on its history and linguistic context, every aspect of its phonology is explored, including prosody and stress, syllabification, word phonology and allomorphy, vowel and consonant systems, phonotactics, voicing, palatalization, etc. The emphasis is on data and explanation. The books may be written within any framework providing the presentation may be clearly understood by those with different theoretical perspectives.
