Abstract:

This volume provides the first survey of optimality theory -- arguably
the linguistic theory of the 1990s. As a general model, optimality
theory has wide applications to a variety of areas in cognitive
science, and especially to those related to language: acquisition,
production, perception, and deficits.

The book leads the reader to an understanding of optimality theory via
the exploration and resolution of specific problems in phonology,
morphology, and syntax, but presumes virtually no background knowledge
in linguistics. Contributors include Diana Archangeli, Michael
Hammond, Douglas Pulleybank, Kevin Russel, and David Pesetsky, and
Margaret Speas.

Taken together, it will be essential reading for advanced
undergraduates, graduates and researchers in linguistics and cognitive
science.
