Ferguson, Charles A., Larry M. Hyman, and John J. Ohala (Eds.). 1975. Nasalfest: Papers from a Symposium on Nasals and Nasalization. Stanford University: Language Universals Project.

This collection of papers, compiled in 1975, has always been somewhat hard to find, as it was initially published in a fairly small print run. Given its limited availability, particularly in the present day, but also its status as a “classic,” as well as its status as a highly useful research tool for folks working on nasals and nasalization, we have chosen to post an electronic version of it here in our “Less Widely Available Archive” (LWAA). Given the size of the volume, we have given it a dedicated page.

    They’re insistent that the title of the volume is not “Nasalfest”, as you have it, but rather “Nasálfest”.
