Workbook in Historical Phonology provides forty-eight problems in the areas of sound change, internal reconstruction and comparative reconstruction. Each of the three sections offers a series of problems of various lengths graded according to difficulty. There are twenty-one problems on sound change, twelve on internal reconstruction and fifteen on comparative reconstruction. The data for the problems are taken from language phyla found all over the world, such as Indo-European, Austronesian, Afro-Asiatic, Nilo-Saharan, Kartvelian, Sino-Tibetan, Uralic, and from various language phyla in the Americas. The International Phonetic Alphabet, a Distinctive Feature chart, plus several brief discussions of sound changes can be found in the Appendix.

English summary: This book uses modern methods of adult education in the field of historical linguistics. It presents a variety of tasks, easy-to-understand exercises and work instructions as well as clear tables and precise descriptions of the development of the Attic language. Step by step the user is introduced deeper into the complicated developments of the Attic language. By applying the structures of language development over and over again the user learns the matter by doing it. The exercises, in which Attics word are deduced from their Indo-European pre-forms, are structured as puzzles that must be solved. The single-step method allows the user to analyze each derivation step exactly as a number always refers to an index of all the Greek sound laws which can be found at the end of the book. In each teaching unit the left page contains the explanations and descriptions of Latin sound laws and the right page offers exercises to train the learning matter. Sound laws, which are explained in other units, are additionally given on the exercise pages. Answers to all the exercises are included in the book. The comprehensive index includes all Greek sound laws and is referred to in every step of a phonological derivation as well as in all the explanations. The index can be used for reference as well. The structure of the book is intentionally identical to the "Latin Historical Phonology Workbook" which is also published in the Reichert Verlag. In this way, not only the parallelism of many developments can be compared with each other at first glance but the user can start working with the book directly without having to deal with any new types of tasks. The book is suitable for use in university courses but can easily be used for self-study as well based on the existing solutions in the book. The language is plain, intelligible and presents complex developments in a simple way so that non-specialists can work with the book. Previous knowledge of Greek is not needed due to the introduction in which the Greek alphabet, the basics of phonology and a theoretical model of language development are presented. German description: Dieses Buch setzt moderne Methoden der Erwachsenenbildung im Bereich der historischen Sprachforschung einzusetzen. Mit einer Vielzahl von Aufgaben, verstandlich gestalteten Ubungen und Arbeitsanweisungen, ubersichtlichen Tabellen und prazisen Beschreibungen bildet der Benutzer die Entwicklung einer der wichtigsten Sprachen der abendlandischen Kultur nach. Schritt fur Schritt wird der Benutzer tiefer in die zum Teil komplizierten Entwicklungen des Attischen eingefuhrt. Durch wiederholtes eigenes Anwenden schleifen sich die Strukturen der Sprachentwicklung quasi spielerisch bei den Benutzern ein. Die Ubungen sind dabei wie Ratsel aufgebaut, die es zu losen gilt. Dabei muss stets die Ableitung eines attischen Wortes vom Urindogermanischen her geleistet werden. Die verwendete Einzelschrittmethode erlaubt es dem Benutzer, jeden Ableitungsschritt genau nachzuvollziehen, da stets eine Nummer auf einen Index aller griechischen Lautgesetze verweist. Die Kapitel bestehen aus einer linken Erklarungsseite, auf der in kurzen Abschnitten der Lehrstoff besprochen wird, und einer rechten Ubungsseite, um die besprochenen phonologischen Prozesse anzuwenden. Lautwandelprozesse, die nicht unmittelbar im Kapitel besprochen werden, sind erganzend auf den Ubungsseiten angegeben. Die Losungen der Ubungen sind ebenfalls im Buch enthalten. Der umfangreiche Index griechischer Lautgesetze kann ebenfalls zum Nachschlagen genutzt werden. Der Aufbau des Buches ist absichtlich vollig identisch mit dem Buch "Arbeitsbuch zu lateinischen historischen Phonologie", das ebenfalls im Reichert Verlag erschienen ist. Auf diese Weise lasst sich nicht nur die Parallelitat vieler Entwicklungen auf den ersten Blick miteinander vergleichen, sondern der Benutzer kann direkt an die Arbeit gehen, ohne sich lang mit neuen Aufgabentypen auseinandersetzen zu mussen. Das Buch eignet sich nicht nur zum Einsatz in Universitatskursen, sondern kann aufgrund der im Buch vorhandenen Losungen problemlos zum Selbststudium genutzt werden. Die Sprache ist klar und verstandlich geschrieben und stellt komplexe Entwicklungen auf einfache Weise dar, damit auch fachfremde Personen mit dem Buch arbeiten konnen. Es werden keine Kenntnisse vorausgesetzt, da zu Beginn ebenfalls das griechische Alphabet, die Grundlagen der Phonologie sowie ein theoretisches Modell der Sprachentwicklung zu finden sind.

This book has been designed for students of Latin and Indo-European-Linguistics and can be used for university courses or self study in order to learn the complex issues of Latin historical phonology within a short time. The implemented one-step-method allows the user to understand in detail every step of a derivation which leads from an Indo-European preform to a Latin word because in each step of the derivation a number refers to a complete list of Latin sound laws. The user can complete missing word forms in over 1000 gaps of phonological derivations. In each teaching unit the left page contains the explanations and descriptions of Latin sound laws and the right page offers exercises to train the learning matter. Sound laws, which are explained in other units, are additionally given on the exercise pages. Answers to all the exercises are included in the book. The comprehensive index includes all Latin sound laws and is referred to in every step of a phonological derivation as well as in all the explanations. The index can be used for reference as well. Consideration is taken that all explanations firstly use Latin data for reconstruction and other languages only where needed. In the chapters about linguistic fundamentals the basic principles of Latin linguistics are introduced which are the analysis of phonemes, accentuation and syllabification as well as the modelling of diachronic sound change. The following chapters present the evolution of Latin vowels and focuses on vowel lengthening and shortening, vowel contraction, vowel weakening in interior syllables and the Latin monophthongizations. The next chapters present in detail the transformations of Latin consonants such as assimilations, dissimilations, the simplification of geminated consonants and the loss of consonants in initial, medial or final position. After the following chapter about analogical changes, the book focuses on the evolution of the Indo-European sound system to the Latin sound system and presents the transformations of Labiovelars, Laryngeals, Media Aspirata and syllabic resonants. A comprehensive chapter about reconstruction inaugurates the beginner with the principles of historic linguistic reconstruction. The numeric index presents all discussed sound laws and is a great source for quick information. All the important data can be seen at a glance. The appendix offers tables about the chronology of the sound laws, characteristic features of Latin languages epochs as well as an overview of the Indo-European languages.

Historical linguistic theory and practice consist of a large number of chronological "layers" that have been accepted in the course of time and have acquired a permanence of their own. These range from neogrammarian conceptualizations of sound change, analogy, and borrowing, to prosodic, lexical, morphological, and syntactic change, and to present-day views on rule change and the effects of language contact. To get a full grasp of the principles of historical linguistics it is therefore necessary to understand the nature of each of these "layers". This book is a major revision and reorganization of the earlier editions and adds entirely new chapters on morphological change and lexical change, as well as a detailed discussion of linguistic palaeontology and ideological responses to the findings of historical linguistics to this landmark publication.

Success in mastering any language requires knowledge in speaking, reading, and writing the language. The speaking component requires the understanding and use of correct pronunciation, emphasis, and syntactic patterns. The written component requires mastery of the alphabet, spelling, and the ability to write, print, or type the pattern. Very early in the learning process, speakers of the English language become keenly aware of the language's lack of sound to symbol correspondence. To help speech/language researchers, media personnel, individuals learning English as a second language, and others interested in correct pronunciation, the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) was devised. Extensively class tested, this book offers a practical understanding approach to phonetics and the IPA in a workbook format. It will be welcomed by professionals, students, and trainees in the fields of communication science, communication disorders, speech pathology, and linguistics.

This book presents a comprehensive and critical overview of historical phonology as it stands today. Scholars from around the world consider and advance research in every aspect of the field. In doing so they demonstrate the continuing vitality and some continuing themes of one of the oldest sub-disciplines of linguistics. The book is divided into six parts. The first considers key current research questions, the early history of the field, and the structuralist context for work on segmental change. The second examines evidence and methods, including phonological reconstruction, typology, and computational and quantitative approaches. Part III looks at types of phonological change, including stress, tone, and morphophonological change. Part IV explores a series of controversial aspects within the field, including the effects of first language acquisition, the status of lexical diffusion and exceptionless change, and the role of individuals in innovation. Part V considers theoretical perspectives on phonological change, including those of evolutionary phonology and generative historical phonology. The final part examines sociolinguistic and exogenous factors in phonological change, including the study of change in real time, the role of second language acquisition, and loanword adaptation. The authors, who represent leading proponents of every theoretical perspective, consider phonological change over a wide range of the world's language families. The handbook is, in sum, a valuable resource for phonologists and historical linguists and a stimulating guide for their students.

The aim of the present work is to contribute to the knowledge of Balochi historical grammar. The main part of the book is a new discussion of the historical phonology of Balochi, the only comprehensive treatment of which existing so far dates from the end of the 19th century. Meanwhile, new material from a wide range of Balochi dialects and varieties has come to light. This makes it possible to distinguish between sound changes affecting the Balochi language as a whole and those that operate only in some variety; the approach to do so systematically is attempted here for the first time. Reassessing previous treatments and comparing important related languages (chiefly New Persian, Parthian and Avestan), the book analyses the development of Old Iranian sounds to the stage of Common Balochi and the changes leading from that stage to the variants spoken today in Pakistan, Iran, Afghanistan and some other countries. The results indicate contact with other languages, specifically with Persian, as several Balochi sound changes are not such as we might expect in a North Western Iranian language. Concerning other sound changes, Balochi differs from all attested Middle Iranian languages. The predecessor of contemporary Balochi seems to have been a dialect rather similar to Parthian, but differing from it in a number of details. So the study of Balochi sound changes provides evidence for Middle Iranian dialectal variation. The diversity and intensity of contacts with neighbouring languages is also reflected in the Balochi lexicon of which selected fields are presented and discussed. The layers of loanwords show a continuing influence of Persian from the earliest times to the present day, relationships to Kurdish, Pashto and Brahui, and, particularly in the field of kinship terminology, intense contact with speakers of Modern Indic languages. The book is complemented by a morphological appendix and a comprehensive etymological index. It is intended as a contribution in the fields of New Iranian languages and historical Iranian linguistics.

Through his analysis of selected major developments in the history of English, Jeremy Smith argues that the history of the language can only be understood from a dynamic perspective. He proposes that internal linguistic mechanisms for language change cannot be meaningfully explained in isolation or without reference to external linguistic factors. Smith provides the reader with an accessible synthesis of recent developments in English historical linguistics. His book: Looks at the theory and methodology of linguistic historiography . Considers the major changes in writing systems, pronunciation and grammar. Provides examples of these changes, such as the standardisation of spellings and accent and the origins of the Great Vowel Shift Focuses on the origins of two non-standard varieties; eighteenth century Scots and twentieth century British Black English.This book makes fascinating reading for students of English Historical linguistics, and is an original, important and above all, lively contribution to the field.
