The Coursebook in Feature Geometry is an undergraduate course
introducing students to current phonology through a sustained use of
the Feature Geometry framework. It is written as a coherent,
accessible, and well-illustrated introduction to the key ideas of
Feature Geometry, focusing on rules of assimilation. In its 20 units
and 40 exercises, it takes the reader step-by-step through the
representational devices of Feature Geometry. The Coursebook attempts
to present the core ideas of Feature Geometry in a unified way, rather
than attempting to incorporate the (considerable) debate concerning
almost every aspect of the theory. The version of Feature Geometry
underlying the Coursebook is basically that found in Sagey's The
Representation of features in non-linear phonology (1990), revised in
accordance with the claims of Lahiri and Evans' 1991 article on
Palatalization and coronality. 2nd printing. (also see the LINCOM
