Production, Perception and Phontactic Patterns presents the first
experimental study of articulatory dynamics of Russian and of
secondary articulents in general, with a special focus on the nature
of positional markedness scales, one of the key concepts in the
current phonological theory (Optimality Theory). Through a series of
experiments the author questions the traditional assumption that
positional markedness scales are directly encoded in Universal Grammar
and provides an alternative account based on gestural
recoverability. This study combines a sophisticated and in-depth
analysis of language-particular phonetic detail with wide
cross-linguistic generalisations and contributes to the increasingly
influential body of research that investigates phonetic factors in the
search for explanations of phonological universals.
