The Phonology of Swedish: The Phonology of the World's Languages

Autor Tomas Riad
en Limba Engleză Hardback – 28 noi 2013
This book presents a comprehensive, contrastive account of the phonological structures and characteristics of Swedish. After an introduction on the history of the language and its relation to other Scandinavian languages, the book is divided into parts dealing with segmental phonology, lower prosodic phonology, stress and tone, morphology-phonology interactions, higher prosodic phonology, and intonation. The book concludes with concise accounts of phonotactics and the relationship between phonology and orthography. Tomas Riad's approach is data-oriented and, insofar as possible, theory-neutral. As well as making an important contribution to its subject, his book provides new insights into how morphology largely determines the distribution of stress in a Germanic language, and how tonal accent may signal wellformedness in word formation.
