Description - The Handbook of Phonological Theory by John A. Goldsmith
The Handbook of Phonological Theory brings together for the first time a detailed examination of the state of phonological theory in this decade. In a series of essays on topics as varied as underspecification theory, prosodic morphology, and syllable structure, 38 leading phonologists offer a critical survey of the leading and guiding ideas that lie behind the research in this active area of linguistic research. In all cases, the contributions have been written by leading workers in the areas which they discuss, and in many cases, the chapters of the Handbook are the first published expositions of new perspectives which have already begun to shape the climate of research in the field.Topics discussed include phonological theory, the organization of phonological gramar, and specific languages and language families that have been particularly important in recent phonological theory.
