Abstract:

This book is an up-to-date, comprehensive, and theoretically coherent account
of the phonology of modern Welsh. It begins by describing the history of
Welsh, its relation to the other Celtic languages and its phonetic inventory.
Six chapters then explore the structures underlying its sound system. The
first considers the phonetic background, including segment inventories and the
characteristics of the main dialects. The second examines phonological
structures including syllables, feet, phonotactics, and stress. The third and
fourth analyse phonological alternations in the language, such as vowel
mutation and assimilation, and foot-based phenomena such as the behaviour of
/h/ and antepenultimate deletion. The fifth examines the phonological
representation of initial consonant mutation, one of the best known and least
understood characteristics of Celtic phonology in which the initial consonant
of a word undergoes a systematic alternation with a consonant that is
phonetically different. The concluding chapter summarizes the work's major
points and arguments and highlights opportunities for research. S. J. Hannahs
approaches the subject from the perspective of generative phonological theory.
He couches specific analyses in the constraint-based framework of optimality
theory but presents data in as theory-neutral a way as possible to ensure its
accessibility to linguists of all theoretical persuasions.
