Description - Compensatory Lengthening by Darya Kavitskaya

This book examines the phonological phenomenon of compensatory lengthening, wherein the loss of a consonant or vowel triggers a compensatory lengthening of another phonetic element. Using synchronic and diachronic analyses the author corrects the predictive shortcomings of purely phonological approaches to compensatory lengthening, and in consequence sheds valuable light on the phonetics/phonology/diachrony interface.
