"This new edition of The Handbook of Phonological Theory is remarkably complete in its scope and coverage of phonological insights and issues. It provides the linguistic community with an indispensable research tool for years to come, and a rich source of information for new generations of linguists." Geert Booij, Professor of Linguistics, University of Leiden, The Netherlands "This is a timely volume. A wonderful collection of papers provides the most up-to-date view of phonological research, reflecting recent extension into studies on phonetics, variation and computation." Jongho Jun, Seoul National University "What is particularly unique and valuable about this volume is not just the combination of the retrospective approach with the array of topics covered but also the strong empirical grounding found in most chapters." Diana Archangeli, University of Arizona The Handbook of Phonological Theory offers a unique and detailed examination of phonology and the transformations that have taken place in the fifteen years since the publication of the first edition. Comprised almost entirely of brand-new pieces from contributors new to this edition, this Handbook consciously builds upon its first edition (which remains available in paperback), using it as a foundation to explore the current shape of the field and the questions that drive ongoing research. Written by an international team of leading phonologists, each of the 28 chapters investigates and assesses key issues in the field, including learnability, phonological interfaces, tone, and variation. The result is a thorough and cutting-edge account of a field that has important implications for linguistic theory as well as related disciplines, such as speech sciences and clinical linguistics.
