The nine papers in this volume cover a wide range of topics in phonological theory and its interfaces with morphology and syntax and constitute an important contribution to current debates in several subareas of phonology, elucidating a number of important issues in phonological theory.
The topics covered in the volume include both further developments of recently proposed frameworks and newly raised or previously unresolved issues with specific subareassyllable structure, rule application and cyclycity, prosodic morphology, metrical structure, segment structure, phonology-syntax interface.
The contributorsJohn Goldsmith, Morris Halle, Bruce Hayes, Larry M. Hyman, Michale Kenstowicz, Charles W. Kissberth, David Odden, Donca Steriade, Moira Yiphave been instrumental in shaping phonological theory.
