Abstract:

Vowel Harmony and Correspondence Theory covers the major issues in the
generative analysis of vowel harmony and vowel harmony typology. The
book offers an economical account of the most prominent features of
vowel harmony systems (root control, affix control, dominance, vowel
opacity, and neutrality) within the framework of optimality theory,
extending the notion of correspondence to the syntagmatic dimension.

The book contains a typological overview of vowel harmony patterns, an
introduction to the basics of optimality theory including some of its
most recent extensions and detailed studies of harmony systems in 10
languages from a variety of language families.

Martin Kr�mer teaches at the University of Ulster, Ireland.
