Phonological Representations: Their Names, Forms and Powersby John Coleman, Coleman John
Pub. Date: 09/28/2005
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
This book reviews current theories of the sound-structure of words and syllables. Dr Coleman presents technical arguments showing that the contemporary theories are too complex and that a simpler theory, Declarative Phonology, is adequate. This theory is exemplified with detailed accounts of the sound-structure of words and syllables in English and Japanese.
