Més informació

The nine papers included in this book investigate a variety of topics on sound change in several Romance languages (French, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Catalan, and Romanian) using different sources of evidence and several methodologies. This collection of papers contributes significantly to our knowledge about the inception and diffusion of sound change and the typological factors which constrain their implementation. The book should be of particular interest to phoneticians and phonologists insofar as, among other issues, it deals with patterns of syllable structure, degree of stability of vowel contrasts, and preference for certain consonant sequences and sound replacements over others.
