Abstract:
			
Ranging from tonogenesis, stress shift, and quantity readjustment to
paradigmatic levelling, allomorphy, and grammaticalization, this
collection covers a wide spectrum of developments, primarily in
Germanic, Romance, and Indo-Aryan. What is shared by the contributors
is the view of individual changes embedded in phonological and
morphological systems. A traditional umbrella category of change in
systems is that of analogy. Somewhat less sanctioned, markedness is a
basic relation shaping the structure of systems, in phonology as well
as morphology. From contemporary theoretical angles the role of
markedness and analogy for change is explored in this volume.

"Lahiri has assembled a valuable collection of work ... by leading
specialists "
Joseph Salmons in Diachronica
