Subject: Literature on Sound Shifts vs. Analogy

Some weeks ago I asked for information on literature concerning sound
change/analogy. I received the following answers:

* Corey Miller:

Paul Kiparsky's article on phonological change in Goldsmith's Handbook
of Phonological Theory (1995)

Kiparsky's 1988 article in Newmeyer's survey of linguistics.

Labov's (1981) article in Language on Resolving the Neogrammarian
Controversy. Also, his 1994 book, Principles of Linguistic Change.

* David Eddington:

"Analogical Modeling of Language" by Royal Skousen, published by
Kluwer, 1989. His approach suggest that analogys, and not rules are
the basis for language, as well as historical shift.

* Charles Reiss:

"Should Output-Output Correspondence be Invoked to Account for
Analogy?" Charles Reiss, 1998

"The origin of the nn / alternation in Old Icelandic" Charles Reiss.

* Antony Dubach Green:

and Manx. PhD diss., Cornell University. [Available from CLC
