'Odden's [Introducing] Phonology is unequalled in its explanations of basic phonological concepts and the reasoning behind phonological analyses. This book shows how to do phonology and how to think like a phonologist.' B. Elan Dresher, University of Toronto

'Odden's emphasis on detailed argumentation and analysis of case studies places this textbook on a par with the best introductions to phonological theory, Kenstowicz and Kisseberth's Generative Phonology (1979) and Kenstowicz's Phonology in Generative Grammar (1993), and happily occupies a level of difficulty intermediate between the two, suitable for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students. Students and professors alike should appreciate the critical and updated eye cast on the building blocks of classical generative phonology, and the unusually large number of thoroughly worked examples from unfamiliar languages.' Bert Vaux, University of Cambridge

'For its wealth of examples and data sets alone this book is a real gold mine.' Martin Krämer, University of Tromsø
