Led by a team of renowned international scholars, the Companion represents a diverse range of approaches and methodologies to key phenomena in phonological research. In contrast to other handbooks and reference works currently available for phonology, these volumes focus on phenomena and case studies that highlight past and ongoing debates in the field. Interdisciplinary connections, such as those with the social and computational sciences, are covered, as well as statistical and experimental techniques. The Companion will be a touchstone for future phonological theorists, giving an overview of data and insights which any theory of phonology should be able to cover."
