Sound Structures of Greek
Series:Phonology and Phonetics [PP]
Aims and Scope
The book offers the first comprehensive and critical overview of Greek phonetics and phonology, covering the vocalic and consonantal system of Greek, its syllable structure, stress system, rhythm, prosodic phrasing and intonation. The book discusses existing formal analyses of and experimental results on Greek sound and proposes new solutions to well-known problems of Greek sound structure based on the author’s own research. Introductory sections render the content accessible to formal and experimental linguists alike. There are several innovations in the book, including its integrative approach to phonetics and phonology and the extensive treatment of prosody. The book will appeal to anyone interested in Greek linguistics from a formal, experimental, clinical or applied perspective.
