Note: This is the paperback edition of a previously announced title.

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.
