 STATE-OF-THE-ARTICLE
 Gereon Mueller on
 "Optionality in Optimality-Theoretic syntax"
 
 "Optimality theory ... recognizes the notion of competition in
 candidate sets as the fundamental concept of grammar. It is therefore
 not surprising that optionality is inherently difficult to account for
 in optimality- theoretic syntax."
 
 COLUMN
 Neil Smith on
 "The structure of noise"

 "The parallelism is not quite exact because the human brain is better
 constructed to withstand insult in the auditory domain than in the
 visual or linguistic domains."
