Abstract:
			
This outstanding volume presents a state-of-the-art overview of
linguistic research into the acquisition of phonology. Bringing
together well-known researchers in the field, it focuses on
constraints in phonological acquisition (as opposed to rules), and
offers concrete examples of the formalization of phonological
development in terms of constraint ranking. The first two chapters
situate the research in its broader context, with an introduction by
the editors providing a brief general tutorial on Optimality
Theory. Chapter two serves to highlight the history of constraints in
studies of phonological development, which predates their current
ascent to prominence in phonological theory. The remaining chapters
address a number of partially overlapping themes: the study of child
production data in terms of constraints, learnability issues,
perceptual development and its relation to the development of
production, and second language acquisition.
