Gesture, Segment, Prosody by Gerard J. Docherty

Book Description

Laboratory Phonology uses speech data to research questions about the abstract categorical structures of phonology. This collection of papers broadly addresses three such questions: what structures underlie the temporal coordination of articulatory gestures? What is the proper role of segments and features in phonological description? And what structures - hierarchical or otherwise - relate morphosyntax to prosody? In order to encourage the interdisciplinary understanding required for progress in this field, each of the three groups of papers is preceded by a tutorial paper (commissioned for this volume) on theories and findings presupposed by some or all of the papers in the group. In addition, most of the papers are followed by commentaries, written by noted researchers in phonetics and phonology, which serve to bring important theoretical and methodological issues into perspective. Most of the material collected here is based on papers presented at the Second Conference on Laboratory Phonology in Edinburgh, 1989. The volume is therefore a sequel to Kingston and Beckman's Papers in Laboratory Phonology I, also published by Cambridge University Press.

Gesture, Segment, Prosody by Gerard J. Docherty Gesture, Segment, Prosody, Paperback (February 2010)

This book is a collection of research papers dealing with various aspects of the relationship between phonology and phonetics.

Phonological Knowledge by Gerard J. Docherty Phonological Knowledge, Hardback (December 2000)

This volume concerns the nature, status, and acquisition of phonological knowledge, and its place in, or relation to, the theory of language and other capacities of mind. The contributions address a range of interrelated issues: for example, whether phonology is 'different' from the rest of language; the implications of sign language; and more.

Urban Voices by Gerard J. Docherty Urban Voices, Paperback (October 1999)

Accents and dialects are undergoing small variations over time. This work presents one of few surveys of this phonological variation and change in urban accents across Great Britain and Ireland. It provides a description of accent features within one or more urban centres, including information on social and stylistic variation and ongoing change.
