Comment: 2 volume set

This dissertation presents a formal theory of markedness, set within
Optimality Theory. Two of the leading ideas are (a) hierarchical
markedness relations may be ignored, but never reversed and (b) the
more marked an element is, the greater the pressure to preserve it.
Phenomena discussed include sonority-driven stress, epenthesis, Place
neutralization, assimilation, and coalescence.
Lingfield(s): Phonetics

Written In: English (Language Code: ENG)
