Abstract:

Explanations for sound change have traditionally focused on identifying the
inception of change, that is, the identification of perturbations of the
speech signal, conditioned by physiological constraints on articulatory and/or
auditory mechanisms, which affect the way speech sounds are analyzed by the
listener. While this emphasis on identifying the nature of intrinsic variation
in speech has provided important insights into the origins of widely attested
cross-linguistic sound changes, the nature of phonologization - the transition
from intrinsic phonetic variation to extrinsic phonological encoding - remains
largely unexplored.

This volume showcases the current state of the art in phonologization
research, bringing together work by leading scholars in sound change research
from different disciplinary and scholarly traditions. The authors investigate
the progression of sound change from the perspectives of speech perception,
speech production, phonology, sociolinguistics, language acquisition,
psycholinguistics, computer science, statistics, and social and cognitive
psychology. The book highlights the fruitfulness of collaborative efforts
among phonologists and specialists from neighbouring disciplines in seeking
unified theoretical explanations for the origins of sound patterns in
language, as well as improved syntheses of synchronic and diachronic
phonology.
