"Andrew Spencer's textbook provides an excellent introduction to the field. Not only does it present the essentials of phonological analysis in a clear and accessible manner, it incorporates sufficient theory to acquaint students with a range of current research issues." Elizabeth Hume, Ohio State University "A clear, up-to-date introductory text. The chapters on syllables, and on rules and domains, are particularly well done." Moira Yip, University of California, Irvine "This is a lively and accessible introduction to phonology for undergraduates. Its focus on English makes it useful for potential linguists as well as for potential teachers of English as a second language." Ellen Broselow, State University of New York at Stonybrook
