Title: The Role of Speech Perception in Phonology
Edited By: Elizabeth V. Hume
Keith Johnson

Do human auditory perceptual abilities shape language sound structures? If
so, what aspects of phonology may be driven by perception, and how should
perceptually driven processes be captured in linguistic theory? These and
similar questions have come to the forefront of linguistic research in the
past decade because the technology used in speech perception research has
become much more widely available and portable and because developments in
constraint-based theories of phonology have made it possible to incorporate
"perceptual constraints" into linguistic grammars. THE ROLE OF SPEECH
PERCEPTION IN PHONOLOGY is a collection of authoritative articles on the
role of speech perception in phonology by leading phonologists,
phoneticians, and cognitive psychologists.
