Title: Optimality Theory: Phonology, Syntax, and Acquisition
Edited By: Joost Dekkers
Jeroen van de Weijer
Frank van der Leeuw

Optimality Theory has revolutionized phonological theory, and its insights are now being applied to other central aspects of language. With contributors that include the leading researchers in the field, this book presents the first fruits of such research as applied to syntax and to language acquisition, as well as considering the main lines of attack on OT by rule-based grammarians.
