This book contains a number of studies on modern approaches to phonological segment structure. There are three main sections: (i) a general section, concerned with the basic theory of segmental structure, features, and the organization of segmental structure into feature-geometric trees, (ii) the representation and behaviour of nasality, and (iii) the representation and behaviour of the laryngeal features.
Marc van Oostendorp is researcher at the Meertens Institute, Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Jeroen van de Weijer is researcher at the Department of Linguistics, Leiden, The Netherlands.
"This book is a welcome contribution to phonology, raising the question of representations and featural organization that many phonologists assume is irrelevant."Michael Cahill in: Linguist List 16.2680/2005
