Abstract:

The essays in this volume address foundational questions in phonology that
cut across different schools of thought within the discipline. The theme of
modularity runs through them all, however, and these essays demonstrate the
benefits of the modular approach to phonology, either investigating
interactions among distinct modules or developing specific aspects of
representation within a particular module. Although the contributors take
divergent views on a range of issues, they agree on the importance of
representations and questions of modularity in phonology. Their essays
address the status of phonological features, syllable theory, metrical
structure, the architecture of the phonological component, and interaction
among components of phonology.

In the early 1990s the rise of Optimality Theory— which suggested that pure
computation would solve the problems of representations and modularity—
eclipsed the centrality of these issues for phonology. This book is unique
in offering a coherent view of phonology that is not Optimality Theory
based. The essays in this book, all by distinguished phonologists,
demonstrate that computation and representation are inherently linked; they
do not deny Optimality Theory but attempt to move the field of phonology
beyond it.
