Rewriting rules, derivations and underlying representations is an enduring
characteristic of generative phonology. In this book, John Coleman argues
that this is unnecessary. The expressive resources of context-free
Unification grammars are sufficient to characterize phonological structures
and alternations. According to this view, all phonological forms and
constraints are partial descriptions of surface representations. This
framework, now called Declarative Phonology, is based on a detailed
examination of the formalisms of feature-theory, syllable theory and the
leading varieties of nonlinear phonology. Dr Coleman illustrates this with
two extensive analyses of the phonological structure of words in English
and Japanese. As Declarative Phonology is surface-based and highly
restrictive, it is consistent with cognitive psychology and amenable to
straightforward computational implementation.
