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

Matthew Andrew Goldrick


Linguistic study has documented quite a lot of regularities in phonological
structure. inside languages, yes sound combos are ill-formed, by no means appearing
in phrases of the language; throughout languages, convinced phonological constructions are preferred
to others. much less good understood are the categories of regularities which are encoded by means of the
spoken creation method. To discover this query, part 1 describes 3 theories
regarding the categories of regularities which are encoded. those theories are: one, the Instance-
Based theory—gradient regularities in accordance with within-language token frequency of
segmental and supra-segmental constructions are encoded; , the Lexical Distribution
theory—gradient regularities according to within-language variety frequency of segmental and
supra-segmental buildings are encoded; and 3, the Markedness theory—categorical
regularities in accordance with cross-linguistic and within-language markedness of sub-segmental,
segmental, and supra-segmental buildings are encoded.
