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.
The importance of Henk Zeevat's new monograph cannot be overstated. [...] I recommend it to anyone who combines interests in language, logic, and computation [...]. David Beaver, University of Texas at Austin

Journal of Language Modelling is a free (no publication fees) open-access peer-reviewed journal aiming to bridge the gap between theoretical linguistics and natural language processing. Although typical articles are concerned with linguistic generalisations – either with their application in natural language processing, or with their discovery in language corpora – possible topics range from linguistic analyses which are sufficiently precise to be implementable to mathematical models of aspects of language, and further to computational systems making non-trivial use of linguistic insights.
