The twenty-five papers in this volume present current analyses of a variety of data and, more significantly, illustrate the various analytical tools available to linguists in the quest for deeper comprehension of the puzzles, questions, and problems they confront in natural language. The distinguished authors collected here explore interactions between linguistic structure and sound patterns across a diverse set of languages. The integrating theme of the volume is the influence of K. P. Mohanan's philosophy of inquiry, derived not only from his rich body of diverse work but also from the fresh perspectives and intellectual vitality that he has shared with colleagues and students in a career spanning over three decades.

"The volume is an excellent sampling of linguistic research at the cutting edge and a fitting tribute to Mohanan, whose work has helped shape the current face of our discipline." - Morris Halle, Massachusetts Institute of Technology "This book is an invitation to sit and participate in a long dinner that never was, a dinner that would have lasted till dawn the next day, where friends and colleagues of K. P. Mohanan would have shared their thoughts about how his tireless explorations inspired and recharged their own spirits." - John Goldsmith, University of Chicago"
