This volume is a collection of advanced laboratory phonology research papers concerned with the interaction between the physical and the mental aspects of speech and language. The traditional linguistic theoretic distinction between phonetics and phonology is put to the test here in a series of articles that deal with some of the fundamental issues in the field, from first and second language acquisition to segmental and supra-segmental phenomena in a range of different languages. Unique features of this volume are the development of innovative experimental methodologies, advanced techniques of data analysis, latest-generation equipment for the observation of speech, and their combined critical application to the study of the phonetics-phonology interface. The volume is therefore not only of great interest but of outstanding value and importance to anyone who wishes to be completely apprised of the latest advances in this crucial area of phonological research.

Subject Index
“This exciting volume brings together the latest research on the interface between phonetics and phonology seen in language acquisition as well as in the interaction between segmental and suprasegmental phenomena - across a range of language varieties in the Romance-speaking world and beyond. Its broadranging approach, drawing on the latest methods, will be of great benefit and interest to researchers everywhere.

“The editors have succeeded in collecting papers that address the many-faceted relation between phonological representations and phonetic behavior in interesting ways and that represent a spectrum of different degrees of integration between them, on the basis of studies of infant as well as adult speakers. Several methodological papers are likely to be frequently cited.”
