This collection of essays by a team of leading scholars affords a wide-ranging study of phonetically-based phonology, investigating the role of phonetics in a broad range of key phonological phenomena. Phonetically-based phonology is centered around the hypothesis that phonologies of languages are determined by phonetic principles; that is, phonetic patterns involving ease of articulation and perception are expressed linguistically as grammatical constraints. Diverse and comprehensive in its coverage, the book will be welcomed by all linguists interested in the relationship between phonetics and phonological theory.
