Phonology: Case Studies

The phonology of a language consists of the patterns of distribution of its speech categories. Phonological analysis is the process of determining what those patterns are, how they can be represented, and why they are the way they are. This site provides a series of case studies for students learning how to do phonological analysis. The case studies go step-by-step through phonological analyses in three languages - Kinyarwanda, Turkish, and Catalan - with soundfiles and references.
