Abstract:

Optimality Theory and Language Change:

 + discusses many optimization and linguistic issues in great
 detail;
 + treats the history of a variety of languages, including English,
 French, Germanic, Galician/Portuguese, Latin, Russian, and
 Spanish;
 + shows that the application of OT allows for innovative and
 improved analyses;
 + allows researchers that appeal to OT to see the connections of
 their (usually synchronic) work with diachronic studies;
 + contains a complete bibliography on Optimality Theory and
 language change.

This volume may be used as one of the texts in courses on historical
phonology or syntax that treat these topics from generative approaches
or that give a general survey of various frameworks of research into
these areas. Likewise, the volume may serve as a text for courses in
phonology, syntax and Optimality Theory that have a component
dedicated to extensions of linguistic theory to historical change. It
is of interest for historical linguists, researchers into Optimality
Theory and linguistic theory, and for phonologists and syntacticians
with an interest in historical change.
