Linguistics 201A: Phonological Theory II
as taught by
Bruce Hayes, Dept. of Linguistics, UCLA
Nowadays I use the UCLA course website system for this course. But I keep this site up too to distribute other materials that might be of interest.
Here are handouts for all the lectures I gave during the Winter 2017 offering: zip file.
Library of articles
don't necessarily assign all these articles in any particular offering
of 201A and some of them are meant as background reading. There
are also things I assign not on this list.
