Acquiring Phonology: A Cross-Generational Case-Study

By Neil Smith

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.

Summary:   Dear list's members,

a couple of months ago I posted a query about references
to the problem of designing a core grammar.

As promised, I'm posting a summary with the information
I collected. First of all, I would like to thank all the
people who responded to my query: Frederik Fouvry,
Wolfgang Schulze, Stefan Mueller, Markus Schulze,
Magdalena Zoeppritz, Myroslava Dzikovska, Miriam Butt,
Gabriel Pereira Lopes, Jean Pierre Chanod.

Below you can find a list of the projects, books, papers,
URLs, resources mentioned in the responses I received or
extracted through browsing on Internet.
