This article presents a personal retrospect of the author on phonology. It is assumed that phonological systems in a language will have varying domains of operation. If domain is defined systematically, then it is found organized in a rank scale found in a grammar with its clauses, phrases, groups and words. It is also assumed that the locus of the phonetic reflexes, or realizations of the phonological systems may be varied and indeterminate.
