  Phonology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Phonology (Greek phonē = voice/sound and logos = word/speech), is a subfield of linguistics which studies the sound system of a specific language (or languages).
In this view, phonology is based on a set of universal phonological processes which interact with one another; which ones are active and which are suppressed are language-specific.
Government Phonology, which originated in the early 1980s as an attempt to unify theoretical notions of syntactic and phonological structures, is based on the notion that all languages necessarily follow a small set of principles and vary according to their selection of certain binary parameters.

In non-linear models of phonology, a stream of speech is represented as multidimensional, not simply as a linear sequence of sound segments.

Phonology in the Twentieth Century : Theories of Rules and Theories of Representations by Stephen R. Anderson
The student of phonology is currently faced with a number of major and apparently competing theories, and the textbook writer who genuinely wishes to confront these questions is faced with the task of assessing the contribution each theory can make, while avoiding the merely fashionable or ephemeral in this contentious and evolving discipline.
Phonology, broadly speaking, is that subdiscipline within linguistics concerned with 'the sounds of language'.

 Shanghai Dialect Phonology
Wu Chinese phonology (including Shanghainese) is quite different from Mandarin and Cantonese.
The phonology presented below is that of the widely perceived modern standard for Shanghainese (Middle Shanghainese, or Standard Shanghainese), with speakers between 20 to 60 years of age.
New (Youth) Shanghainese is nearly identical to Standard Shanghainese, except it has merged a few vowels together (which will be explained in the Vowel section).

 Interfacing Phonology with LFG
This interaction between phonology and other aspects of the grammar, including syntax, information structure, and semantics, has also clearly been attested in the analysis of clitic placement (e.g., Halpern 1992) and will be explored here with regard to complex predicates and focus in Bengali.
Selkirk 1986, Hayes 1990 and others have argued that the only influence of syntax on phonology is in determining the prosodic structure of the string and that syntax has no other direct effect on phonology.
We argue that such regroupings are resolved in the relationship between p-structure and the phonology, in a fashion similar to the remappings that occur with quantifiers between s-structure and the semantics (Dalrymple, Lamping, Pereira, and Saraswat 1997).

 LSA.211 | Loanword Phonology
With the conceptual shift from rules to a constraints and repair model of sound change, loanword phonology has emerged as a topic of considerable interest.
Because inputs of considerable diversity and complexity can be devised, loanword phonology takes on the status of an experiment of nature in allowing us to probe phonological competence.
In a significant number of cases adapters converge on a repair strategy that lacks a precedent in the native system and sometimes may even contradict L1 repairs, raising serious learnability puzzles.

 Introducing Phonology - Cambridge University Press
Through over sixty graded exercises, students are encouraged to make their own analyses of phonological patterns and processes, based on extensive data and problems sets from a wide variety of languages.
Introducing Phonology equips students with the essential analytical skills needed for further study in the field, such as how to think critically and discover generalizations about data, how to formulate hypotheses, and how to test them.
Providing a solid foundation in both the theory and practice of phonology, it is set to become the leading text for any introductory course, and will be invaluable to all students beginning to study the discipline.

 phonology. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-05
It is distinguished from phonetics, which is the study of the production, perception, and physical properties of speech sounds; phonology attempts to account for how they are combined, organized, and convey meaning in particular languages.
In phonology, speech sounds are analyzed into phonemes, the smallest units of sound that can change the meaning of a word.
A phoneme may have several allophones, related sounds that are distinct but do not change the meaning of a word when they are interchanged.

The first half of term will be an introduction to phonetics, taught by Mike Davenport; the second half an introduction to phonology, taught by S.J. Hannahs.
The second part of the course will examine the basics of phonology, starting with the question of how phonology is different from phonetics and considering some of the non-phonetic bases of phonology.
From there we will turn to the distribution of speech sounds, phonological relationships, phonological analysis, rules and rule interaction, finishing with an overview of the Generative Phonology model presented by Chomsky and Halle in their 1968 book The Sound Pattern of English.
