Book Information


Title: Papers in Laboratory Phonology V: Language Acquisition and the Lexicon
Edited By: Michael Broe
Janet B Pierrehumbert

Papers in Laboratory Phonology V sets two new themes: language acquisition
and lexical representation. Contributors tackle the central problem of what
constitutes a possible word in generative phonology, employing contemporary
approaches such as Optimality Theory, connectionism, and stochastic
grammars. Several papers integrate the issues of lexical representation and
language acquisition by undertaking to explain the organization of the
adult phonological system as the end product of the acquisition process.
This timely collection will be of interest to a wide range of researchers
in phonetics, phonology, psycholinguistics, and the study of speech disorders.
