Comparative phonology

Does anyone know of a book that discusses, compares and contrasts the sounds (i.e. phonologies) of the different lanugages of the world? I've already got one on phonetics, and am teaching myself the basic sounds, but I'd like to see how these sounds are put together into phonetic systems in lots of other languages (and what effects this creates in the language, such as "ugliness" or "fluidity"), possibly with a view to making my own ...

Accent confusion

Can some one tell me why the accent pattern is different for path/r patro/j and quga/thr qugatro/j ?

Thank you.

A solution to the Expansion of the Universe?

According to Einstein's theory of general relativity, gravity bends or warps space-time. this is because the gravitons, or gravity waves, contain no mass and therefore exert their force over large distances with infinite speed. in other words, light from a star that passes by a large body, like our sun, could appear in a place that it is not. the gravity from the sun would bend space time so that even though light may seem ...
