An overview of the post-SPE theory of generative phonology, suitable for linguists not specializing in phonology, who want to keep abreast of the latest developments in the subject. This text covers all the major trends in "non-linear" phonology, including particle, dependancy and charm phonology.
"Generative Phonology" offers an overview of the post-SPE theory of generative phonology and is suitable for linguists not specializing in phonology, who want to keep abreast of the latest developments in the subject. It deals with all the major trends in what has come to be known as "non-linear" phonology, including: particle phonology; dependancy phonology; government and charm phonology. Iggy Roca guides the reader through the developments of the various approaches, justifying their rationale against the background of SPE machinery, and providing the reader with the basic tools necessary to penetrate current problems and debates. This text aims to integrate the modules and proposals of what can seem a fragmentary field, into a cohesive body of living theory.

"What differentiates [this book] from most other phonology texts on the market is that Roca chooses to treat not only "standard" theories, but also "non-standard" approaches that for various reasons have failed to gain widespread acceptance in the literature...an important comtribution to the field because Roca generally succeeds in synthesizing these apparently diverse approaches with mainstream generative phonology. The book reads very well and presents an exemplary summary of almost all major topics in current phonological theory." -"Phonology
