This chapter is an introduction to the entire volume providing a summary of the following fourteen chapters in the general framework of phonetics and phonology. The book aims to achieve three goals: (i) to present novel, original data and analyses concerning geminate consonants in many individual languages around the world, (ii) to introduce various experimental and non-experimental methodologies and thereby provide a wide range of perspectives for the study of phonological contrasts in general, and (iii) to discuss phonological contrasts in a wider context than is generally considered by looking also at the behaviour of geminate consonants in loanword phonology, speech processing, and language acquisition. This chapter explains how the fourteen chapters contribute to these goals.

Keywords:   geminate consonants, phonological contrast, phonetics, phonology, loanword phonology, speech processing, language acquisition
