     Introducing Phonetics and Phonology
Publisher: Hodder Education Publishers
Author(s): Mike Davenport, S.J. Hannahs

This book examines some of the ways in which linguists can express what native speakers know about the sound system of their language.

Intended for the absolute beginner, it requires no previous background in linguistics, phonetics or phonology. Starting with a grounding in phonetics and phonological theory, the book provides a base from which more advanced treatments may be approached.

It begins with an examination of the foundations of articulatory and acoustic phonetics, moves on to the basic principles of phonology, and ends with an outline of some further issues within contemporary phonology. Varieties of English, particularly Received Pronunciation and General American, form the focus of consideration, but aspects of the phonetics and phonology of other languages are discussed as well.

This new edition includes more discussion of Optimality Theory and a new glossary of terms. It has been updated throughout to take account of the latest developments in phonological theory, but without sacrificing the book's ease of use for beginners.

     Phonology: An Introduction to Basic Concepts (Cambridge Textbooks in Linguistics)
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Author(s): Roger Lass

What is the phonological organisation of natural languages like? What theoretical and analytical approaches are most fruitful? Is there any phonological theory that is 'the best' in all ways? The student of phonology is currently faced with a number of major and apparently competing theories, and the textbook writer who genuinely wishes to confront these questions is faced with the task of assessing the contribution each theory can make, while avoiding the merely fashionable or ephemeral in this contentious and evolving discipline. Roger Lass sees phonology as essentially a problem-centred discipline. Since in his view none of the supposedly comprehensive answers proposed to the questions raised above is really comprehensive or acceptable in all its detail, he concentrates rather on introducing the student to the perennial concerns in the study of sound structure. Hence his book adopts a broad and eclectic framework, unbiased toward any one model or theory. Instead, important aspects of the phenomenology of sound structure are discussed in relation to the particular phonological theory - be it Prague phonology, American structuralism, prosodic phonology, generative phonology - for which they are most salient. The book surveys a wide range of competing theories, analytical strategies, and notational systems, and attempts to provide a coherent intellectual and historical perspective on a discipline which has too often been viewed recently as developing via a series of 'revolutions'. Although this textbook assumes some command of phonetics, little other linguistic background is presupposed, and the author carefully provides the groundwork for each new development before it is introduced. In addition, the book deals in detail with two areas not customarily treated extensively in introductory texts; the phonology of casual speech, and phonological change. This spirited and original synthesis will enable its readers to acquire a real understanding of the fundamentals of phonology.

     Introduction to Phonetics and Phonology: From Concepts to Transcription
Publisher: Allyn & Bacon
Author(s): Jacqueline Bauman-Waengler

Introduction to Phonetics and Phonology: From Concepts to Transcription provides readers with�a basic foundation in both phonetics and phonology.� The book has two goals:� (1) to connect phonetics and phonology into a conceptual unity and (2) to demonstrate the practical relevance of phonetics, phonology, and phonetic transcription for beginning students in communication disorders and related disciplines, such as linguistics or education.�

Written with an abundance of real-life examples, this first edition provides readers with a large base of information, from the basic definitions of phonetics and phonology to their practical, clinical applications when analyzing speech samples, demonstrating to future speech language practioners the interconnection between these two areas of of the field.��The text's�uniqueness lies in the continuous application of the presented information to practical examples, reinforcing to students the relevance of this knowledge to clinical practice while providing�the instructor with practical examples which can be used to demonstrate basic principles.

An important feature of this book is the inclusion of �a phonetic transcription workbook.� This workbook guides the student through a systematic learning process beginning with the identification of sounds within words, as opposed to letters, to transcribing multisyllabic words and short phrases.� The process is a step-by-step one in which vowels and consonants are introduced in small groups, words are selected based on these sounds, followed by listening and transcription practice.� Additional sounds are added systematically and each unit builds upon the next. The workbook will provide the student with many opportunities to learn phonetic transcription in an orderly process.�

     Phonology and Language Use (Cambridge Studies in Linguistics)
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Author(s): Joan Bybee

Referencing new developments in cognitive and functional linguistics, phonetics, and connectionist modeling, this book investigates various ways in which a speaker/hearer's experience with language affects the representation of phonology. Rather than assuming phonological representations in terms of phonemes, Joan Bybee adopts an exemplar model, in which specific tokens of use are stored and categorized phonetically with reference to variables in the context. This model allows an account of phonetically gradual sound change that produces lexical variation, and provides an explanatory account of the fact that many reductive sound changes affect high frequency items first.

     The Oxford Handbook of Laboratory Phonology (Oxford Handbooks)
Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA
Author(s):

This book provides state-of-the-art coverage of research in laboratory phonology. Laboratory phonology denotes a research perspective, not a specific theory: it represents a broad community of scholars dedicated to bringing interdisciplinary experimental approaches and methods to bear on how spoken language is structured, learned and used; it draws on a wide range of tools and concepts from cognitive and natural sciences. This book describes the investigative approaches, disciplinary perspectives, and methods deployed in laboratory phonology, and highlights the most promising areas of current research.

Part one introduces the history, nature, and aims of laboratory phonology. The remaining four parts cover central issues in research done within this perspective, as well as methodological resources used for investigating these issues. Contributions to this volume address how laboratory phonology approaches have provided insight into human speech and language structure and how theoretical questions and methodologies are intertwined. This Handbook, the first specifically dedicated to the laboratory phonology approach, builds on the foundation of knowledge amassed in linguistics, speech research and allied disciplines. With the varied interdisciplinary contributions collected, the handbook advances work in this vibrant field.

     Evolutionary Phonology: The Emergence of Sound Patterns
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Author(s): Juliette Blevins

Evolutionary Phonology is a new theory of sound patterns which synthesizes results in historical linguistics, phonetics, and phonological theory. In this groundbreaking book, Juliette Blevins explores the nature of sound patterns and sound change in human language over the past 7000-8000 years. She presents a new approach to the problem of how genetically unrelated languages, from families as far apart as Native American, Australian Aboriginal, Austronesian, and Indo-European, can often show similar sound patterns, and also tackles the converse problem of why there are notable exceptions to most of the patterns that are often regarded as universal tendencies or constraints. A formal model of sound change is presented that integrates phonetic variation and patterns of misperception to account for attested sound systems, without reference to markedness or naturalness within the synchronic grammar.
