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.
