The handbook of phonological theory by John A Goldsmith( Book )

75 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 739 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Handbook of Phonological Theory brings together for the first time a detailed examination of the state of phonological theory in this decade. In a series of essays on topics as varied as underspecification theory, prosodic morphology, and syllable structure, thirty-eight leading phonologists offer a critical survey of the leading and guiding ideas that lie behind the research in this active area of linguistic research. In all cases, the contributions have been written by leading workers in the areas which they discuss, and in many of the cases, the chapters of the Handbook are the first published expositions of new perspectives which have already begun to shape the climate of research in the field. Topics discussed include: phonological theory, the organization of phonological grammar, and specific languages and language families that have been particularly important in recent phonological theory

Ideology and linguistic theory : Noam Chomsky and the deep structure debates by Geoffrey J Huck( Book )

28 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in English and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is the role of meaning in grammar? In the late 1960s and early 1970s the question split the linguistics community and separated Noam Chomsky from some of his most prized students. In Ideology and Linguistic Theory Geoffrey J. Huck and John A. Goldsmith provide a revisionist account of the development of ideas about semantics in modern theories of language, focusing particularly on Chomsky's very public rift with the Generative Semanticists about the concept of Deep Structure." "Despite the eventual triumph of Chomsky's theory of interpretive Semantics, the authors argue that many of the central issues raised in the debates in fact have never been resolved. At the same time, they show through detailed analysis of the principal theoretical arguments how and why the theories were far more compatible than has ever been generally assumed." "Supplemented by extended interviews with four of the original participants in the debates, this book provides an incisive appraisal of the paradigm which has dominated American linguistics for the last thirty years. This book will appeal to anyone with an interest in the study of language and mind or the history of the human sciences."--Jacket

The Last phonological rule : reflections on constraints and derivations( Book )

12 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the past three decades, phonological theory has advanced in many areas, but it has changed little in its foundational assumptions about how computational processes can serve as a basis for the theory. This volume suggests that it may be worthwhile to reconsider some of those assumptions. Is there an order to the rules in a phonological derivation? What kinds of links other than derivations are possible between the level of mental representation and the level of speech sounds? Since phonological representations are so much more sophisticated today than they were a few decades ago, do we need any phonological rules at all? In this book, leading linguists and computer scientists consider the challenges that computational innovations pose to current rule-based phonological theories and speculate about the advantages of phonological models based on artificial neural networks and other computer designs. The authors offer new conceptions of phonological theory for the 1990s, the most radical of which proposes that phonological processes cannot be characterized by rules at all, but arise from the dynamics of a system of phonological representations in a high-dimensional vector space of the sort that a neural network embodies. This new view of phonology is becoming increasingly attractive to linguists and others in the cognitive sciences because it answers some difficult questions about learning while drawing on recent results in philosophy, psychology, artificial intelligence, and neuroscience -- Provided by the publisher

Stephen Spender : journals, 1939-1983 by Stephen Spender( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Stephen Spender's Collected Poems is the first gathering together of this renowned poet's major work in more than thirty years. The book contains recent uncollected poems, including remembrances of Auden, Stravinsky, and Louis MacNeice, as well as previously uncollected early poems. Sir Stephen has also made considerable changes in the texts of his earlier work, eliminating some poems and significantly reworking many others. Stephen Spender is a signal figure in the history of poetry in English in our century. A poet of engagement, both political and emotional, he has witnessed and vividly described the traumas and trials of his age. This definitive collection of his poems is his essential testimony."--Back cover
