9780123613516: The Role of Speech Perception in Phonology

Do human auditory perceptual abilities shape language sound structures? If so, what aspects of phonology may be driven by perception, and how should perceptually driven processes be captured in linguistic theory? These and similar questions have come to the forefront of linguistic research in the past decade because the technology used in speech perception research has become much more widely available and portable and because developments in constraint-based theories of phonology have made it possible to incorporate "perceptual constraints" into linguistic grammars. The "Role of Speech Perception in Phonology" is a collection of authoritative articles on the role of speech perception in phonology by leading phonologists, phoneticians, and cognitive psychologists. It presents a diverse range of views on the linguistic implications of speech perception research. It reports a number of new empirical research findings on speech perception. It provides definitive theoretical positions and contrasting viewpoints. It offers clearly defined implementation options.

"The variety of perspectives on the place of speech perception in phonology presented in this volume is impressive. It IS a meeting of the minds, as Lindblom introduced it, a forum where the difficult topic of speech perception in phonology calls for cooperation of phonologists and phoneticians. This volume shows that such cooperation is not only possible but also enjoyable, as both groups of researches realize the need for each other's insights to discuss and understand the perceptual component of the organization of speech and language...It is highly recommended as a valuable contribution to a library of every phonologist, phonetician, and speech scientist."
