By Glyne L. Piggott
April 20, 2020

1st Edition

By John J. McCarthy
April 20, 2020

In the second section of this title, a solution to the traditional problem of the ...

1st Edition

By Elizabeth V. Hume
April 20, 2020

First published in 1994. This study aims to provide evidence for the natural class of sounds comprised of front vowels, front glides and coronal consonants. The author also shows that a revised definition of the articulator feature [coronal] properly characterises this natural class of sounds. The ...

German Pronunciation and Phonology

German Pronunciation and Phonology

1st Edition

By Jethro Bithell
April 20, 2020

First published in 1952. This book does not confine itself to German phonetics; it aims rather at showing by what processes and tricks of sound words have been shaped in the course of years; it is therefore a book on phonology as well. It should have a wide appeal to students of German. Moreover, ...

1st Edition

By Martin Maiden
April 20, 2020

First published in 1991. The existence of morphonology had been the subject of intense debate in twentieth-century linguistic theory. Attempts to identify putatively morphonological phenomena had often foundered on the widespread assumption of a rigid dichotomy between synchronic morphological ...

1st Edition

By Linda Lombardi
April 20, 2020

On Clitics and Cliticization The Interaction of Morphology, Phonology, and Syntax

On Clitics and Cliticization: The Interaction of Morphology, Phonology, and Syntax

1st Edition

By Judith L. Klavans
April 20, 2020

First published in 1995. This investigation shows that cliticization is not a totally unified phenomenon. Asymmetries in the behaviour of phonological and syntactic clitics show that no single principle predicts all clitic behaviour. The study explores the idea that modifications to the original ...
