THE SOUND PATTERN OF ENGLISH.
CHOMSKY, NOAM; HALLE, MORRIS
"THE SOUND PATTERN OF ENGLISH" PRESENTS A THEORY OF SOUND STRUCTURE AND A DETAILED ANALYSIS OF THE SOUND STRUCTURE OF ENGLISH WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF GENERATIVE GRAMMAR. IN THE PREFACE TO THIS BOOK THE AUTHORS STATE THAT THEIR "WORK IN THIS AREA HAS REACHED A POINT WHERE THE GENERAL OUTLINES AND MAJOR THEORETICAL PRINCIPLES ARE FAIRLY CLEAR" AND THAT "FURTHER INVESTIGATION WITHIN THE SAME FRAMEWORK WILL NOT SIGNIFICANTLY ALTER THE OVERALL PICTURE" PRESENTED HERE. THE FIRST 60 PAGES OF THIS BOOK (PART I, GENERAL SURVEY), ARE DIRECTED TO THOSE READERS CONCERNED "ONLY WITH THE GENERAL PROPERTIES OF ENGLISH SOUND STRUCTURE, WITH THE CONSEQUENCES OF THESE PROPERTIES FOR GENERAL LINGUISTIC THEORY, AND WITH THE IMPLICATIONS OF GENERAL LINGUISTIC THEORY FOR OTHER FIELDS." PART II--"ENGLISH PHONOLOGY," PART III--"HISTORY, THE EVOLUTION OF THE MODERN ENGLISH VOWEL SYSTEM," AND PART IV--"PHONOLOGICAL THEORY," ARE DIRECTED TO THE READER CONCERNED WITH THE DETAILED DEVELOPMENT OF PHONOLOGICAL THEORY AND ENGLISH GRAMMAR. THE BOOK CONCLUDES WITH A CHAPTER IN WHICH THE AUTHORS SKETCH NEW DIRECTIONS FOR THE THEORY OF SOUND STRUCTURE AND INDICATE SOME CONSEQUENCES FOR THE DESCRIPTION OF ENGLISH AND OTHER LANGUAGES. THIS BOOK IS PUBLISHED BY HARPER AND ROW, INC., 49 EAST 33 STREET, NEW YORK, N.Y. 10016 ($12.95). (JD)
