Reviews

This amazing book does justice to the diversity among tone languages, first by covering the basics of the phonetics and phonology of tone and then by analyzing scores of examples drawn from languages from across the globe showing how tonal phenomena function. The final chapter on cognitive aspects is a bonus rarely found in a phonology textbook. It will interest linguists across a broad spectrum and is likely to give many instructors the push they need to offer a course in tone at the graduate and advanced undergraduate level. William R. Leben, Stanford University
