Description - Phonology in Generative Grammar by Michael Kenstowicz

This is the most comprehensive and current introduction to
phonological theory and analysis. Presupposing only minimal
background in linguistics, the book introduces the basic concepts
and principles of phonological analysis and then systematically
develops the major innovations in the generative model since
Chomsky and Halle's Sound Patterns of English
(1968). Careful study of the text will enable the student to read
the current scholarly literature with critical understanding and
some perspective. Some unique features of the book include a set of
exercises reinforcing the basic concepts and principles,
illustrations from a variety of languages based on published and
unpublished materials, a survey of all the major lines of research
in phonological theory, and an extensive bibliography.
Phonology in Generative Grammar is supported by an
instructor's manual.
