Bibliographic information


'Readers will experience the kind of intellectual excitement that comes with an academic subject being brought back to life for them. It is a must-read for graduate students and researchers, for whom it will be an indispensable reference.' - K. K. Luke, University of Hong Kong

'Martha Pennington has gathered here researchers at the cutting edge...enabling a synthesis which marks the vibrancy, theoretical sophistication, and broad applicability of phonology as it is understood today. Common to these new understandings are realizations of how phonology is shaped by dynamic processes of usage. This book will stimulate and inform experts and novices alike.' - Nick Ellis, University of Michigan
