Product description


The aspiring diachronic phonologist will find many avenues here worthy of further pursuit, and the more seasoned scholar will be heartened by the new models of phonologisation that have emerged out of a synthesis between cutting-edge computational and experimental method. * Bridget Samuels, Diachronica * The collection presents fascinating insights and raises intriguing further questions ... This book will be of interest not only to a readership in historical linguistics or phonology, but also to researchers and students in other disciplines interested in sound change * Krisztina Polgardi, Acta Linguistica Hungarica *
