Title: Optimality Theory
Subtitle: An Overview
Edited By: Diana Archangeli
D. Terence Langendoen
URL: http://www.blackwellpub.com/asp/book.asp?ref=0631202269
Series Title: Explaining Linguistics
Description:

This volume provides the first survey of optimality theory -- arguably the linguistic theory of the 1990s. As a general model, optimality theory has wide applications to a variety of areas in cognitive science, and especially to those related to language: acquisition, production, perception, and deficits.


The book leads the reader to an understanding of optimality theory via the exploration and resolution of specific problems in phonology, morphology, and syntax, but presumes virtually no background knowledge in linguistics. Contributors include Diana Archangeli, Michael Hammond, Douglas Pulleybank, Kevin Russel, and David Pesetsky, and Margaret Speas.

Taken together, it will be essential reading for advanced undergraduates, graduates and researchers in linguistics and cognitive science.
