Kaminska, Tatiana Ewa


This book presents a synchronic account of data from Scottish English interpreted within the framework of 'Lexical Phonology' and non-linear theories of the syllable. It centres around two groups of problems crucial for the contrastive dialectal studies of English language, in particular, vocalic processes and the phonoloy of [r]. More specifically, it investigates two vowel lengthening processes: 'Aitken's law' and the 'Allophonic Lengthening Rule'. Kamin'ska tries to demonstrate that the former is an accent specific lexicalization of the latter. Moreover, the book provides a comparative survey and analysis of phonological rules related to the sound [r] in both rhotic and non-rhotic accents of English. The framework of 'Lexical Phonology' is debated in the light of its application to the data from Scottish English.Kaminska, Tatiana Ewa is the author of 'Problems in Scottish English Phonology', published 1995 under ISBN 9783484303287 and ISBN 348430328X.
