Drawing on recent developments in cognitive and functional
linguistics, phonetics, and connectionist modeling, this study
investigates various ways in which a speaker/hearer's experience with
language affects the representation of phonology. Joan Bybee adopts an
exemplar model, in which specific tokens of use are stored and
categorized phonetically with reference to variables in the
context. This model allows an account of phonetically gradual sound
change which produces lexical variation.
