    OPTIMALITY THEORY: Phonology, Syntax, and Acquisition Edited by Joost Dekkers, Frank van der Leeuw, and Jeroen van de Weijer, Leiden University

    Optimality Theory has revolutionized phonological theory, and its insights are now being applied to other central aspects of language. With contributors that include the leading researchers in the field, this book presents the first fruits of such research as applied to syntax and to language acquisition, as well as considering the main lines of attack on OT by rule-based grammarians.

    THE ARCHITECTURE OF LANGUAGE Noam Chomsky, MIT Edited by Nirmalangshu Mukherji, Visva-Bharati University, Santiniketan, India, Bibudhendra Narayan Patnaik, Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, and Rama Kant Agnihotri, Delhi University, Delhi

    Noam Chomsky is one of the most widely published and influential thinkers on language and mind. This book consists of an edited transcript of a lecture, delivered at the University of Delhi in January 1996, where Chomsky reflects on the history of the 'generative enterprise' to relate it to some strikingly novel advances in recent grammatical theory.
