Title: Modern Cantonese Phonology
Written By: Robert S. Bauer
Paul K. Benedict
Series Title: Trends in Linguistics. Studies and Monographs
Description:

This volume presents an analysis of modern Cantonese. It describes the consonants, vowels, and tones of the contemporary language and examines the structure of the Cantonese syllable and the types of changes that can occur when syllables are strung together in words and phrases. The descriptive phonology is not based on any particular linguistic theory. Written in a clear and concise language, this comprehensive account of Cantonese phonology is appropriate for the beginning student of Cantonese, the Cantonese native-speaker, the teacher of English to Cantonese-speaking students, the professional linguist, and the layman curious about one of Southeast Asia's major languages.
