"Her book is like the insider's guide to a strange but inviting place. Throughout this journey, Vihman is an able guide, accurate reporter, insightful interpreter, and imaginative synthesizer. Her even-handed perspective brings competing theories into clear relief, and shows how various sources of data stand in respect to each other. Vihman transcends disciplinary boundaries and shows how various specialities converge in the contemporary study of developmental phonology." Ray Kent, University of Wisconsin-Madison
