A research perspective that takes language use into account opens upnew views of old issues and provides an understanding of issues that lin-guists have rarely addressed.Referencing new developments in cog-nitive and functional linguistics,phonetics,and connectionist modeling,this book investigates various ways in which a speaker/hearer’s experi-ence with language affects the representation of phonology.Rather thanassuming phonological representations in terms of phonemes,JoanBybee adopts an exemplar model,in which specific tokens of use arestored and categorized phonetically with reference to variables in thecontext.This model allows an account of phonetically gradual soundchange that produces lexical variation,and provides an explanatoryaccount of the fact that many reductive sound changes affect high-frequency items first.The well-known effects of type and token fre-quency on morphologically conditioned phonological alterations areshown also to apply to larger sequences,such as fixed phrases andconstructions,solving some of the problems formulated previously asdealing with the phonology–syntax interface.Joan Bybee is the author of several books and articles on phonology,morphology,language universals,and linguistic change.Most recently,she served as a coeditor for both
Essays on Language and Function Type
(1997) and
Modality in Grammar and Discourse
(1995).Dr.Bybee isRegents’ Professor of Linguistics and Chair of the Department of Linguistics at the University of New Mexico.
