The Norwegian language has undergone considerable change in the last 180 years, and in this book Gjert Kristoffersen considers the abundant evidence in order to provide us with an original analysis of the ways in which the sounds and meanings of competing languages may change and evolve. - ;This is a comprehensive account of the phonetic and phonological properties of Norwegian. The author considers the structure of the lexicon and the principles by which the ordering of sounds in Norwegian can be defined. He then discusses word phonology and its interaction with lexical structure; the principles of syllabification; the placement of dialects; intonation; and connected speech. Dr Kristoffersen concludes with an analysis of the complex relations between written and

spoken language in Norway. The book is written within the framework of Generative Phonology, making use of insights mainly derived from Lexical Theory. Its main, and successful, purpose is to present the phonological system of Norwegian clearly and concisely. - ;The Phonology of Norwegian is a book that no future student of Norwegian phonology can afford to ignore. - Journal of Linguistics;The book is an ideal reference source in lexical phonology for students in advanced phonology courses and professional linguists. - Times Higher Education Supplement;The Phonology of Norwegian is a major contribution which will significantly advance phonologists' understanding of Norwegian, and which will be the standard reference work on this language for decades to come. - Curt Rice, Phonology
