    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 158.00

    This paper investigates the role of affricates in the phonotactics of English, and notes that these segments behave differently from stops and differently from fricatives. This is taken as evidence against the proposal that affricates cannot form a natural class by themselves, which is inherent in the so-called “Stop Approach” to the representation... more...

It also underlines... more...

  • Language Turned on Itselfby Herman Cappelen; Ernest Lepore

    Oxford University Press 2007; US$ 26.99

    Language Turned on Itself examines what happens when language becomes self-reflexive; when language is used to talk about language.

It's... more...
