Abstract:

The two volumes of the Phonological Spectrum aim at giving a
comprehensive overview of current developments in phonological theory,
by providing a number of papers in different areas of current
theorizing which reflect on particular problems from different
angles. Volume I is concerned with segmental structure, and focuses on
nasality, voicing and other laryngeal features, as well as segmental
timing. With respect to nasality, questions such as the phonetic
underpinning of a distinctive feature [nasal] and the treatment of
nasal harmony are treated. As for voicing, the behaviour of voicing
assimilation in Dutch is covered while its application in German is
examined with an eye to its implications for the stratification of the
German lexicon. In the final section of volume I, the structure of
diphthongs is examined, as well as the treatment of lenition and the
relation between phonetic and phonological specification in sign
language.
