Synopses & Reviews
This book offers an accessible and integrated overview of generative phonology as it is practised today. Setting out to overcome the apparent fragmentation of the field, Iggy Roca brings together the various strands that have developed since the appearance of SPE a quarter of a century ago, and integrates the genuine advances and innovations into a coherent model of phonology. He supplies the basic terminology and conceptual tools to allow the non-specialist reader to penetrate current problems and debates, whilst providing a rich body of literature for the phonologist.
Includes bibliographical references (p. -293) and indexes.
