First published in 1985. Two basic issues figure in this study. The first concerns the representation of syllabic and accentual structure, and the effects of those structures on the formulation of phonological rules. In the second section of this title, a solution to the traditional problem of the root and pattern morphological system of Semitic is proposed and illustrated by an extensive treatment of Classical Arabic. This title will be of particular interest to students of linguistics.

This set of 23 volumes, originally published between 1952 and 1996, amalgamates a wide breadth of research on the subject of phonetics and phonology, including studies on the axiomatic method, nonlinear phonology, and prosodic phonology. This collection of books from some of the leading scholars in the field provides a comprehensive overview of the subject how it has evolved over time, and will be of particular interest to students of language and linguistics.
