This volume consists of nine articles dealing with topics in distinctive feature theory in various typologically diverse languages, including Acehnese, Afrikaans, Basque, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, Japanese, Korean, Navajo, Portugese, Tahltan, Terena, Tswana, Tuvan, and Zoque. The subjects dealt with include feature geometry, underspecification (in rule-based and in Optimality Theoretic treatments) and the phoenetic implementation of phonological feaures). Other topics include laryngeal features (for example voice, spread glotis, and nasal) and place features for consonants and vowels.
