Description

This book provides an insight into the patterns of variation and change of rhotics in different languages and from a variety of perspectives. It sheds light on the phonetics, the phonology, the socio-linguistics and the acquisition of /r/-sounds in languages as diverse as Dutch, English, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Italian, Kuikuro, Malayalam, Romanian, Slovak, Tyrolean and Washili Shingazidja thus contributing to the discussion on the unity and uniqueness of this group of sounds.

Reviews

Experimental phoneticians, phonologists, sociolinguists and historical dialectologists can all learn from the papers in the monograph, which, while highly technical, present their conclusions clearly and succinctly. These studies provide exemplars of how research on rhotic variation can be carried out. Most of the papers are very informative and will be useful for future researchers by providing a template for how to carry out a given research path, as well as by analysis of specific results.
