The Handbook of Phonological Theory


This volume 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 guiding ideas that lie behind this active area of linguistic research. In all cases, the contributions have been written by leading researchers, and in many cases, the chapters of this Handbook are the first published expositions of new perspectives which have already begun to shape the climate of research in the field.
