Overview

Introductory Phonology provides an exceptional foundation to the field for those who are coming to it for the first time. Developed and tested through years of experience and use, it emphasizes analysis of phonological data as well as the scientific context in which phonological analysis takes place. Hayes explains the analytical methods clearly as well as discussing the larger questions of what phonological patterns reveal about language.
The book includes numerous student-friendly features, including multi-part exercises and suggestions for further reading. The chapters include annotated bibliographies with reference sources, which will help both instructors and students increase their depth of knowledge of the theories and languages covered. Accessibly and succinctly written by a renowned phonologist, this volume is an ideal first course book in phonology.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The challenge of using a textbook to teach phonological analysis is to strike the right balance between learning-by-reading and learning-by-doing. Bruce Hayes meets this challenge for us with this textbook. His writing is clear and accessible, and his thoughtful organizational choices promote a deep understanding of the goals of phonological analysis." Eric Bakovic, University of California-San Diego
