Book Information


Title: The Phonology of English: A Prosodic Optimality-Theoretic Approach
Written By: Michael Hammond

The Phonology of English offers a new approach to English phonology. It focuses on the prosody of the language, i.e. syllable and foot structure, and does so from an optimality-theoretic (OT) perspective. The book is thus intended as a detailed presentation of novel empirical results about the sound system of English, along with important theoretical results about phonological theory.
