A Case Study in Diachronic Phonology is the first large scale application of Henning Andersen's theory of language and language change - a theory built on both C.S. Pierce's semiotic conceptual apparatus and the structural linguistics of Roman Jakobson, including his particular theory of distinctive features. In implementing the above framework consistently in this book, Bjarke Frellesvig provides a possible explanation and understanding of both the origin and the specific course of the so-called onbin sound changes in Japanese, revealing relevant and interesting features of a subject hitherto not well understood.

This volume centers on three important theoretical concepts for the study of language change and the ways in which language structure emerges and turns into new structure: reanalysis, actualization, and indexicality. Reanalysis is a part of ongoing everyday language use, a process through which language is reproduced and changed. Actualization

The papers include broad surveys of theoretical analyses and of psycholinguistic studies, meticulous assessments (some
