Can anyone tell me where I can find a good introductory article on 
Optimality Theory?

I need something that is 20-50 pages and is a good general introduction.

Help!

hi everyone,

I am currently looking for a database on children child directed speech. 
I've already tried childes and found some very good samples there. I had 
found another database on the internet - but I didn't bookmark it so now 
I can't remember the name again. If anyone knows any other speech 
databases, please answer to my posting. Maybe I can find that other 
database again.

thanks,

Christian Schmeer
