In rule-based theories, analyses are tightly linked to phenomena (alternations, distributional patterns).

If a phenomenon is observed in a language, a rule is proposed to “predict” the occurrence of the phenomenon. The structure of the book is slightly unusual: most textbooks for beginning students, even if they focus on English, tend to begin with an outline of elementary universal phonetics, and introduce phonological concepts later.

In languages which have lost the contrast, each TBU is both a syllable and a mora (and pre-consonantal nasals are typically non-syllabic).
