After the elementary matters of phonemes and allophones, Odden covers the rigours fo feature theory, phonological typology and naturalness.
The final chapter on nonlinear representations makes a case for reconceptualizing data instead of ignoring troublesome facts, thus furthering theory. Though I haven’t made an exhaustive survey, Odden’s is the best basic textbook of phonology that I have come across. It certain proves friendlier than the entry in the Cambridge Textbooks of Linguistics red cover line.
He certain seems determined to turn out competent linguists of the future, as he goes through the steps of doing an analysis over and over again. Odden is an Africanist, and the wealth of little-known African languages he has assembled here for example makes this an especially intriguing textbook. However, he also teaches basic principles through English, Russian, Finnish, and many more European languages.
The wide-ranging and very challenging exercises further make this an excellent textbook. I’ve been in phomology for years now, but I phohology profit from Odden’s book, as going over the exercises once in a while keeps my skills sharp.
It merits a look from not just first-year undergraduates. Odden’s textbook doesn’t phomology too deep intorducing the theory debate. Optimality Theory is mentioned a few times but never much described. However, intrlducing does give some recommendations for further reading after each chapter, so the reader will pnonology able to go on to more specific material.
Jan 17, Calista rated it it was ok Shelves: Odden needs to take a page from Psychologists and write a better textbook. A fellow classmate said he got a different phonology book and was reading that instead and the material made more sense to him.
I’m not sure what exactly about the layout was inroducing unappealing, but this book didn’t make for very interesting or easy reading. Perhaps it’s because the concepts being covered aren’t that difficult, and can’t help but be dry.
I didn’t think the end of chapter exercises were very helpful, either. S Odden needs to take a page from Psychologists and write a better textbook.

I’m in general dismayed with the quality of pedagogical materials in linguistics. The text is interesting, if a bit dry, but the problem sets are poorly organized.
The occasional page break would go a long way to making the problems easier to phono,ogy with, with less flipping back and forth it seems there’s constantly the first half of a problem on one side, the second half on the next page.
And would it I’m not a big fan of this book, though I’m told it’s one of the best Phonology texts out there. I realize not all phonologists use the same feature set, but it seems like all the problems in the book could share one, and stop us from flipping back and forth through the early chapters to solve problems.
