PDF File An Introduction to Issues, and to Issues in English Phonology. English phonology and linguistic theory: an introduction to issues, and to ‘Issues in English Phonology’ .

In this article, we document some of the ways in which particular English phonological phenomena have driven theoretical developments in phonology and related areas, as a contribution to the history of recent phonological theorising.
