Overview

Written for students of linguistics, applied linguistics and speech therapy, this dictionary covers over 2,000 terms in phonetics and phonology. In addition to providing a comprehensive, yet concise, guide to an enormous number of individual terms, it also includes an explanation of the most important theoretical approaches to phonology. Its usefulness as a reference tool is further enhanced by the inclusion of pronunciations, notational devices and symbols, earliest sources of terms, suggestions for further reading, and advice with regard to usage.
The wide range of topics explained include:
* Classical phonology, including American Structuralism and the Prague School
* Contemporary approaches, including Autosegmental Phonology, Metrical Phonology, Dependency Phonology, Government Phonology and Lexical Phonology
* Prosodic ideas in phonology, both traditional and contemporary &hat; * * historical phonology
* Intonation and tonology
This dictionary devotes space to the various theoretical approaches in proportion to their importance, but it concentrates most heavily on non-theory-bound descriptive terminology. It will remain a definitive reference for years to come.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Explicates a formulation of the structural part of consequentialism, analyzing key concepts such as outcomes, alternatives, and performability, and arguing that consequentialism should be understood as a maximizing rather than satisficing theory and as temporally neutral rather than future oriented. Shows that certain moral theories cannot be reformulated as consequentialist theories, and discusses modifications of the standard consequentialist criteria of obligatoriness, rightness, and wrongness. For philosophers. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
