Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...Giegerich's book combines a wealth of data with extensive discussion (within this narrow framework) and provides enough reference to the counterexamples to phonemic analysis to make most readers want to see what kind of additional insights (and additional problems) can be found in a less restrictive generative analysis of the same facts." John T. Jensen, Canadian Journal of Linguistics
