The derivational residue in phonological optimality theory

£75.00

Product description

Constraint-based frameworks such as Optimality Theory (OT) have significantly altered phonologists' views on the nature of derivations and their role in linguistic theory. Earlier frameworks of generative phonology were characterized by a fairly complicated theory of derivations, involving lexical levels, the cycle, and intrinsic and extrinsic rule ordering, among other things. OT in its standard form, on the other hand, represents a minimalist theory of derivations, recognizing only a direct mapping from input to output. This volume addresses questions from many different points of view by a number of outstanding scholars: Is this minimal theory sufficiently well-equipped to deal with the empirical complications of natural language or do we need a larger 'derivational residue' in our theory? What are the relevant facts and how can we deal with them? Are there any reasons to think that an OT-based approach to derivations may even be more successful than its rule-based competitors? The book also features an introduction into the general issues involved and an extensive bibliography.

Oxfam Bookshop Chiswick

Oxfam Books & Music Turnham Green is a local favourite for reasonably priced second hand books, CD's, DVD's and vinyl. Come along and have a good browse...


Turn left at Turnham Green tube, head under the bridge and we're a short walk along on the left.  Alternatively, head up Turnham Green Terrace from Chiswick High Road, and we're further up on the right.  Local bus routes include the E3, 27, 94, 237 and 272.


Donations of books, CD's DVD's and vinyl are very welcome.  If coming by car, you can stop to unload on the double yellow lines on the same side of the road as the shop, but on no account mount the pavement or park at the bus stop on the opposite side as you will be fined.  Overall, it's less tense to come to our side entrance on Thornton Avenue - access from Chiswick High Road, follow the No Through Road signs, and at the end you will see our door which has a grill on it and a buzzer to press for attention.  


We're looking forward to seeing you soon!
