Book Information

   

Title: Markedness and Economy in a Derivational Model of Phonology
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/rs/bookSingle.cfm?id=IS-3110184656-1&l=E
Series Title: Studies in Generative Grammar 80
Description:

This book proposes a new model of phonology that integrates rules and
repairs triggered by markedness constraints in a classical derivational
model. In developing this theory, the book offers new solutions to many
long-standing problems involving syllabic and segmental phonology with
analyses of natural language data, both well-known and relatively unknown.
The book also includes a new treatment of Palatalization and Affrication
processes, a novel theory of feature visibility as an alternative to
feature underspecification and an extensive critique of Optimality Theory.

ANDREA CALABRESE is Associate Professor at the University of Connecticut,
Storrs, USA.

Of interest to: Research Libraries; Researchers and Advanced Students of
Linguistics, especially Phonology.
