The aim of this book is to provide a comprehensive analysis of the phonology of the variety of Norwegian spoken by the majority of the inhabitants of the most densely populated area of Norway, the south-eastern region surrounding its capital Oslo. Even if the book is written within the framework of Generative Phonology, the main purpose is not to defend a specific theoretical approach, but to present data and propose analyses of a specific phonological system in a (hopefully) clear, concise and coherent manner, so that the reader can judge the merits of and perhaps take issue with the solutions offered. I have therefore chosen to write the book within what I considered to be a fairly mainstream generative approach when I started working on the book some 5 years ago—Lexical Phonology, the basic principles of which I can safely assume to be familiar to the majority of the phonological community.
