Book Cover
The Handbook of Phonological Theory: Second edition

The Handbook of Phonological Theory offers a unique and detailed examination of phonology and the transformations that have taken place in the fifteen years since the publication of the first edition. Comprised almost entirely of brand-new pieces from contributors new to this edition, this Handbook consciously builds upon its first edition (which remains available in paperback), using it as a foundation to explore the current shape of the field and the questions that drive ongoing research.

Written by an international team of leading phonologists, each of the 23 chapters investigates and assesses key issues in the field, including learnability, phonological interfaces, tone, and variation. The result is a thorough and cutting-edge account of a field that has important implications for linguistic theory as well as related disciplines, such as speech sciences and clinical linguistics.
