Patterns in Sound, Patterns in Mind: Phonological Regularities in Speech Production

Matthew Andrew Goldrick


Linguistic learn has documented a variety of regularities in phonological
structure. inside of languages, definite sound combos are ill-formed, by no means appearing
in phrases of the language; throughout languages, definite phonological constructions are preferred
to others. much less good understood are the kinds of regularities which are encoded by means of the
spoken construction process. To discover this question, part 1 describes 3 theories
regarding the kinds of regularities which are encoded. those theories are: one, the Instance-
Based theory—gradient regularities according to within-language token frequency of
segmental and supra-segmental constructions are encoded; , the Lexical Distribution
theory—gradient regularities in response to within-language sort frequency of segmental and
supra-segmental buildings are encoded; and 3, the Markedness theory—categorical
regularities according to cross-linguistic and within-language markedness of sub-segmental,
segmental, and supra-segmental buildings are encoded.
