About the Author:

Ilse Lehiste was Professor of Linguistics in the Department of Linguistics at Ohio State University since its founding in 1965 until 1987, and Chairman of the Department during the years 1965-1971 and 1985-1987. Her previous books include Principles and Methods for Historical Linguistics (with Robert Jeffers) and Word and Sentence Prosody in Serbocroatian (with Pavle Ivic).

Review:

Jeffers and Lehiste's text is admirably clear and well-planned. They have been very successful in drawing examples from real linguistic data, in reducing them to the minimum necessary detail, and in expounding them so as to complement and strengthen the main points in the exposition. The text itself flows in a smoothly logical manner from topic to topic, giving the student an implicit introduction to diachronic reasoning, simultaneously with an explicit introduction to diachronic facts.
