(p.42) 4 Segmentation
Fundamental Concepts in Phonology

Ken Lodge

Edinburgh University Press

The central notion of segmentation of the speech chain is investigated in some detail. Examples that do not fit easily with the process of cross-parametric slicing are considered. The development of the ability to segment in humans is discussed and its relationship to reading an alphabetic script. A non-segmental approach which integrates syntagmatic features of the speech chain, is argued for, to be developed in the following two chapters.

Keywords:   Segmentation, cross-parametric slicing, syntagmatic features
