The central theme of this collection is the epistemological status of
constraints and preferences in linguistics. The contributions focus
mainly on phonology; one article deals explicitly with morphology. The
approaches to phonology represented in the volume are those of Natural
Phonology, Government Phonology, Optimality Theory, autosegemental
phonology, and computational phonology. Constraints are juxtaposed
either to rules or to preferences in the discussion of
constraint-based vs. preference-based theories.

(Studies in Generative Grammar 53)


This volume contains thirteen papers that use Spanish data to treat a
series of problems which are central to current linguistic theory and
provide up-to date analyses of these data.. The papers deal with
connected syntactic and semantic issues in different dialects of
Spanish, in related languages (Galician, Catalan, German, etc.) or in
different stages in the evolution or acquisition of Spanish. Thus, the
book will be of interest for theoretical, descriptive, contrastive and
pedagogical purposes.
