The book’s extraordinary clarity makes it readily understandable by anyone with a keen interest in phonology. The substance of phonology is more constant and more general than the limitations inherent in any particular theory or formalism may suggest. The book therefore provides a coherent account for beginner-students, rooted primarily – but by no means exclusively – in the phonology of English.
No particular theory or formal apparatus is preferred over another; instead, the essence of phonology is provided in the most neutral possible way, for the maximum benefit of the reader. The book avoids entanglement in doctrinal disputes and formal minutiae, and aims instead for the general and the permanent.

A Course in Phonology
Review quote “An outstanding didactic achievement likely to replace other publications in the area of introductory phonology An excellent introduction pbonology the theory and practice of mainstream generative phonology and should be on the reading list of any course on this topic.
It has been written by people who are not only exceptionally good at doing linguistics, but also at teaching it.
Roca and Johnson are to be congratulated on this accomplishment, to be sure, as these will be features that will appeal to students and instructors alike. The presentation is logical and clear. Exercises are well chosen I have no doubt that A Course in Phonology will be, because of its depth and coverage and its attention to pedagogical concerns, the book of choice for many instructors of phonology. Beginning with the basic principles of phonological investigation, the text leads the reader through all major theoretical frameworks, up to and including Optimality Theory.
