Analysis and Theory

Edmund Gussmann, University of Gdansk, Poland

This textbook is a clear and concise introduction to phonology that
assumes no prior knowledge and provides an overall view of the field
which can be covered within a year. It also does not confine itself to
any specific theoretical approach. Each chapter focuses on a
particular set of theoretical issues including segments, syllables,
feet, and phonological processing. Gussmann explores these areas using
data drawn from a variety of languages including English, Icelandic,
Russian, Irish, Finnish, Turkish, and others.

2. The melody and the skeleton; 
3. Domains and phonological regularities; 
4. The syllable;

6. Some segmental regularities; 
7. Syllable structure and phonological effects: quantity in Icelandic; 
8. Segmental double agents; 
9. Words and feet--stress in Munster Irish;
