First published in 1980. This study investigates salient properties of the phonological structure of Odawa, a dialect of Ojibwa, in terms of their implications for phonological theory. Indeed, the primary concern is with theoretical issues, specifically with questions about the abstractness of phonological descriptions and about the ordering and application of phonological rules. This title will be of interest to students of language and linguistics.
