Book Information

   

Title: The Syllable in Optimality Theory
Edited By: Caroline Féry
Ruben van de Vijver
Description:

Note: This is the paperback edition of a previously announced book.

This book provides an overview of the role of the syllable in Optimality
Theory (OT) and ways in which problems that relate to the analysis of
syllable structure can be solved in OT. The contributions to the book show
that the syllable not only sheds light on certain properties of OT itself.
They also show that OT is capable of describing and adequately analyzing
many issues that are problematic in other theories. The analyses are based
on a wealth of languages.
