The study also highlights the constructs of current linguistic theory, arguing for distinctive features and the notion 'onset' and against some of the claims of Optimality Theory and Usage-based accounts.

State of the Art in Computational Morphology
Workshop on Systems and Frameworks for Computational Morphology, SFCM 2009, Zurich, Switzerland, September 4, 2009, Proceedings
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the Workshop on Systems and Frameworks for Computational Morphology, SFCM 2009, held in Zürich, Switzerland, in September 2009.
The workshop had three main goals: to stimulate discussion among reseachers and developers and to offer an up-to-date overview of available systems for German morphology which provide deep analyses and are suitable for generating specific word forms; to stimulate discussion among developers of general frameworks that can be used to implement morphological components for several languages; to discuss aspects of evaluation of morphology systems and possible future competitions or tasks, such as a new edition of the Morpholympics.
