Many groups of people working in a range of distinct branches of study all contribute to our understanding of the ways in which phonology can change. Papers in Historical Phonology aims to provide a platform where these groups can talk to each other. It aims to celebrate this diversity of approach, to tie in with the long traditions of research on phonological change, variation and reconstruction, and to push forward debate and understanding, both by welcoming methodological innovation (alongside time-honoured approaches) and by pushing the boundaries of current publication practices. This preface describes PiHPh and places it in context.
