The Cambridge Handbook of Communication Disorders examines the full range of developmental and acquired communication disorders and provides the most up-to-date and comprehensive guide to the epidemiology, aetiology and clinical features of these disorders.
This book has two main goals: the re-establishment of a rule-based
phonology as a viable alternative to current non-derivational models and
the rehabilitation of historical evidence as a focus of phonological
theory. Although Lexical Phonology includes several constraints such as the
Derived Environment Condition and Structure Preservation, intended to
reduce abstractness, previous versions have not typically exploited these
fully. The model of Lexical Phonology presented here imposes the Derived
Environment Condition strictly; introduces a new constraint on the shape of
underlying representations; excludes underspecification; and suggests an
integration of Lexical Phonology with Articulatory Phonology.
