This book explores foundational questions in phonology, such as the sorts of phenomena that comprise the explananda of the field, how phonological objects should be represented, or the optimal architecture for phonological theory. It examines computation and representation, the distinction between phonetics and phonology, modularity within phonology, and modularity producing emergent phenomena. It looks at core aspects of phonology and interactions within and among modules, the status of phonological features, and contemporary theories of syllabification in phonology. It also discusses metrical structure, the overall architecture of the phonological component, and various sorts of interaction among components of phonology.

Keywords:   phonology, phonetics, modules, modularity, computation, representation, syllabification, metrical structure, architecture
