Abstract:

This book is the final version of the widely-circulated 1993 Technical
Report that introduces a conception of grammar in which well-formedness is
defined as optimality with respect to a ranked set of universal constraints.

- Final version of the widely circulated 1993 Technical Report that was the
seminal work in Optimality Theory, never before available in book format.

- Serves as an excellent introduction to the principles and practice of
Optimality Theory.

- Offers proposals and analytic commentary that suggest many directions for
further development for the professional.
