About this Item

This work introduces a new approach to syllable representation. It proposes an additional level of phonological representation, the CV-tier; which defines functional positions within the syllable. The first three chapters provide an explanation of and support far this new approach from a typologically varied selection of languages, including English, Turkish, Finnish, French, Spanish, and Danish. The last two chapters are devoted to an in-depth application of the theory of Klamath, showing that a radical simplification of the phonological rules of that language is made possible in terms of this new framework. The book constitutes the first full-scale phonological justification for the CV-tier. George N. Clements is Associate Professor in the Linguistics Department at Cornell University and co-author, along with Morris Halle, of the recent MIT Press/ Bradford Books publication, Problem Book in Phonology. Samuel Jay Keyser is Head of the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy at MIT and editor of the Linguistic Inquiry Monograph Series. Samuel Jay Keyser is the Peter de Florez Professor Emeritus in Linguistics and Special Assistant to the Chancellor at MIT. Printed Pages: 208. Size: 16 Cms x 24 Cms. Bookseller Inventory # 005369
