The articles in this volume - consisting of selected papers presented at
the first Old-World Conference on Phonology (OCP1), held in Leiden on
January 10-12, 2003 - show that there are still many interesting questions
to be asked on segmental structure, that there is quite a lively debate on
many of the issues concerned, and that the field is far from monolithic in
its methodological approach: some authors use OT as a tool, but others do
not; some refer explicitly to the results of phonetics for phonological
explanation, while others prefer a purely abstract, cognitive approach.
Furthermore, the reader will find contributions from neighbouring
disciplines such as language typology and historical linguistics. The
articles study topical questions within this particular field from various
angles: to what extent do we still need a feature geometry, and to what
extent is it universal? What is the relevance of evidence from historical
linguistics, typology, etc.? How should we represent the 'complexity' of
'complex' segments?
