This thesis presents a phonological study of Phuket, a southern Thai dialect, approached from the point of view of Jakobsonian distinctive features. Chapter 1, introduction, gives information about the geographical and linguistic background of the Phuket dialect, the scope and aim of the thesis and the arrangement of the data. Part 1 which contains Chapters 2, 3 and 4 gives the phonetic interpretation of the phonemic transcription, a description of pitch patterns, and suggests a feature analysis of the phonemes, and examines the acoustic correlates of such features. Part 2 which contains Chapters 5 and 6, proposes phonological rules to deal with problems of distribution, and deals' with the treatment of tones and their phonological features, according to W. S-Y Wang's theory.
