If I had more time, I’d want to review at least one of these five books recently announced as “available for review” on LinguistList (listed here in the order in the announcement):
- Burzio’s Principles of English Stress (CUP, 2005; apparently an update/revision of the 1994 edition),
- Coleman’s Phonological Representations: Their Names, Forms and Powers (CUP, 2005),
- Giegerich’s Lexical Strata in English: Morphological Causes, Phonological Effects (CUP, 2005),
- Silverman’s A Critical Introduction to Phonology: Of Sound, Mind, and Body (Continuum, 2005),
- Newman’s Coursebook in Feature Geometry (LINCOM, 2003).
I don’t have time, but maybe a phonoloblog reader out there does, and I’ll be happy to cross-post.
I do have time to note this one little odd thing in the abstract for the Giegerich book, though:
Drawing examples from English and German, [Giegerich] uncovers and spells out in detail the principles of ‘lexical morphology and phonology’, a theory that has in recent years become increasingly influential in linguistics.
I guess that depends a lot on how you interpret “recent years” … still, I’m sure it’s interesting.
