Book Information


Title: The Phoneme
Subtitle: Its Nature and Use
Written By: Daniel Jones

The Phoneme, first published in 1950, is now not only a standard work on
its subject but comprises Daniel Jone’s major and final expression of his
theoretical attitudes. This is a reissue of the third edition (1967), which
includes the appendix on the history and meaning of the term phoneme. It
sets out in detail the author’s conclusions about the nature and function
of the phoneme, illustrating them from over 40 languages. The book
continues to represent for the historian of language an important landmark
in the development of linguistics.
