Abstract:

This collection of papers focuses on the general theme of phonological
strength, bringing together current work being undertaken in a variety of
leading theoretical frameworks. Its aim is to show how referring directly
to strength relations can facilitate explanation in different parts of the
phonological grammar.

The papers introduce illuminating data from a wide range of languages
including English, Dutch, German, Greek, Japanese, Bambara, Yuhup, Nivkh,
Sesotho and other Bantu systems, demonstrating how strength differences are
central to the analysis of phonological patterning not only in
well-documented cases of segmental asymmetry but also in other areas of
description including language acquisition, pitch accent patterns and tonal
phenomena. All of the contributors agree on the need for a phonological (as
opposed to a phonetic) approach to the question of strength differences,
and show how a strength-based analysis may proceed in various theoretical
models including Dependency Phonology, Government Phonology, Strict CV
Phonology and Optimality Theory.

Many of the papers develop a structural account of their data, in which
strength relations are understood to reflect asymmetric licensing relations
holding between units in representations. The volume provides a snapshot of
current thinking on the question of strength in phonology. The range of
language data and theoretical contexts it explores give a clear indication
that phonological strength acts as a common thread to unite a range of
apparently unrelated patterns and processes.
