Fourteen papers representative of the 1996 Berkeley Germanic Linguistics Roundtable reflect the current resurgence of interest in phonological research. Interest in diachronic studies remains strong; historical research seems to be the locus for phonological studies, while syntax is pursued mainly with contemporary data. The Germanic dialects are well represented, with rich cross-linguistic evidence from non-Germanic languages. A broad array of current linguistic theories and paradigms, including the Minimalist Program, Semantic Typology, feature geometry, laboratory phonetics, and linguistic fieldwork pervade the collection.
