The Phonetics and Phonology of Geminate Consonants

Cover art

KUBOZONO Haruo (Ed.)

Oxford Studies in Phonology and Phonetics (details), April 2017,
ISBN: 9780198754930

This book is the first volume specifically devoted to the phonetics and phonology of geminate consonants, a feature of many of the world's languages including Arabic, Bengali, Finnish, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Malayalam, Persian, Saami, Swiss German, and Turkish. While the contrast between geminate and singleton consonants has been widely studied, the phonetic manifestation and phonological nature of geminate consonants, as well as their cross-linguistic similarities and differences, are not fully understood.
