The study also highlights the constructs of current linguistic theory, arguing for distinctive features and the notion 'onset' and against some of the claims of Optimality Theory and Usage-based accounts.
The importance of Henk Zeevat's new monograph cannot be overstated. [...] I recommend it to anyone who combines interests in language, logic, and computation [...]. David Beaver, University of Texas at Austin
This volume represents an exploration of the notion that the principles of grammatical well-formedness and the principles of language processing are interdependent. They deal with the nature of syntactic structure and grammars for syntax, with strategies for parsing and generation, and with aspects of phonological structure and grammars for phonology. Some of the papers in this collection overlap two or more areas, and demonstrate the importance of integrating concepts from the theories of grammar and computation.
