The Handbook of the Syllable methods the learn of the phonology and phonetics of the syllable with theoretical, empirical and methodological heterogeneity as its guideline. because the mid-nineteenth century, students within the phonetic and phonological sciences have came upon it handy to consult the syllable, yet definitions are scarce and none practice to all components the place the syllable is often invoked. The Handbook's seventeen chapters specialise in empirical reports of the syllable by means of offering either new information and new sorts of information. The paintings addresses the syllable in phonology, phonetics, experimental psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, diachronic linguistics, and orthography. it's a seminal reference publication for researchers exploring any empirical zone the place the thought of 'the syllable' is invoked.
