    Wiley 2014; US$ 135.00

    Textual information in the form of digital documents quickly accumulates to create huge amounts of data.

  • Above and Beyond the Segmentsby Johanneke Caspers; Yiya Chen; Willemijn Heeren; Jos Pacilly; Niels O. Schiller; Ellen van Zanten

    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...
