OPTIMALITY THEORY: Phonology, Syntax, and Acquisition
Edited by Joost Dekkers, Frank van der Leeuw, and Jeroen van de Weijer,
Leiden University

Optimality Theory has revolutionized phonological theory, and its
insights are now being applied to other central aspects of
language. With contributors that include the leading researchers in
the field, this book presents the first fruits of such research as
applied to syntax and to language acquisition, as well as considering
the main lines of attack on OT by rule-based grammarians.

THE ARCHITECTURE OF LANGUAGE
Noam Chomsky, MIT
Edited by Nirmalangshu Mukherji, Visva-Bharati
University, Santiniketan, India, Bibudhendra Narayan
Patnaik, Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, and
Rama Kant Agnihotri, Delhi University, Delhi

Noam Chomsky is one of the most widely published
and influential thinkers on language and mind. This
book consists of an edited transcript of a lecture,
delivered at the University of Delhi in January 1996,
where Chomsky reflects on the history of the
'generative enterprise' to relate it to some strikingly
novel advances in recent grammatical theory.
