Abstract:

This collection of papers by an international group of authors honors
Jonathan Kaye's contributions to phonology by expanding some of Kaye's
ideas to a variety of theoretical topics and languages. The set of
ideas discussed or used in this collection includes: empty categories,
licensing relationships and constraints, a restrictive two-levelled
approach to phonology (without rule ordering or constraint ranking), a
restrictive theory of syllabic representation (without the codas
constituent and with exclusively binary branching), theories of the
phonology-phonetics interface in which phonology is motivated
independently of phonetics, and the metatheoretical flaws in a number
of widely accepted but rarely questioned views on phonology.
