Ranging from tonogenesis, stress shift, and quantity readjustment of
paradigmatic levelling, allomorphy, and grammaticalisation, this
collection covers a wide spectrum of developments, primarily in
Germanic, Romance, and Indo-Aryan. What is shared by the contributors is
the view of individual changes as embedded in phonological and
morphological systems. A traditional umbrella category of change in
systems is that of analogy. Somewhat less sanctioned, markedness is a
basic relation shaping the structure of systems, in phonology as well as
morphology. From contemporary theoretical angles the role of markedness
and analogy for change is explored in this volume.
