9780826486608: A Critical Introduction to Phonology: Of Sound, Mind, and Body (Continuum Critical Introductions to Linguistics)

Continuum Critical Introductions to Linguistics present core areas of the subject from refreshing new perspectives. This book takes an interdisciplinary approach to phonology which departs from the mainstream tradition. Daniel Silverman introduces the key aspects of phonology, and argues that the nature of linguistic sound systems can only be understood in the context of how they are actually used by speakers and listeners. Using sound samples from a large corpus of data, Daniel Silverman introduces phonology as a practical subject to be used and enjoyed, rather than as a theoretical minefield with no bearing on the reality of how people speak. A Critical Introduction to Phonology is engagingly written and uses anecdotes and examples drawn from popular culture to illustrate each point. The book provides comprehensive coverage of all the key areas of the subject, and contains chapter summaries to help the reader navigate the text. Throughout the book Daniel Silverman prompts critical thinking about this core area of linguistics, and this will therefore be essential reading for students on introductory phonology courses both at undergraduate and postgraduate level.

About the Author:

Dr Daniel Silverman is the author of Phasing and Recoverability (New York: Garland, 1997)

Review:

This book is a refreshingly original introduction to phonology, written ina very accessible style. It will be invaluable to anyone who wishes tourge their students to critically assess different aproaches tophonological theorising, rather than simply accepting received wisdom. (Philip Carr (Professor of Linguistics in the Department of English at the University Paul Valery, France)

Reference & Research Book News, August 2006 (mention)

'David Silverman's book is another welcome attempt at bridging the gulf between the two disciplines. The author is well versed in both areas, and his style is clear and pedagogic...His multidisciplinary approach is in parts highly original.'Per Lindblad, Moderna Språk (Per Lindblad)

A rare textbook that does double duty: newcomers to linguistics will be both educated and entertained by the engaging discussion, while seasoned linguists will be rewarded with a lucid and illuminating review of theoretical controversies in phonology. My own students will appreciate that Silverman articulates his own theoretical stance so clearly while at the same time offering plentiful consideration of alternative views. The ingredients for an excellent undergraduate essay are all contained in this one handy resource. (Dr. Deborah L. Anderson, Affiliated Lecturer, Dept. of Linguistics, University of Cambridge, UK)
