Segmental Phonology in Optimality Theory
Constraints and Representations
Linda Lombardi, University of Maryland, College Park

It was not clear from early work in optimality theory how the theory could
attack the rich range of phenomena now found in segmental alterations. 
However, there is now a body of work that concentrates on working out the 
details of featural phonology with OT, demonstrating that the theory 
allows superior explanations of the typological possibilities and the
underlying motivations for these phenomena. This volume brings together 
current work by some of the influential researchers in this area, ranging
from the authors of recent influential dissertations to prominent senior

Linda Lombardi, Cheryl Zoll, Robert Kirchner, M�ire N� Chiosain and Jay
Padgett, Joe Pater, Chip Gerfen, Moira Yip, Haruka Fukazawa, Junko Ito and 
Armin Mester.
