Editorial Reviews

"This comprehensive textbook is an excellent introduction to the field of phonology. The material is logically and incrementally presented, and wonderfully illustrated with original linguistic data and exercises. The reader will gain a good understanding of mainstream phonology in historical context, and will also be introduced to alternative frameworks." - Carrie Dyck, Associate Professor of Linguistics, Memorial University of Newfoundland, Canada
