This book investigates the extent to which phonological knowledge plays a role in speech perception. The speech perception process is formalized within the theoretical frameworks of Natural Phonology, Optimality Theory, and the Neigbourhood Activation Model. Examples come from the perception of segments, stress, and intonation in the fields of loanword adaptation, second language acquisition, and sound change.
