 Abstract:
 
 This book investigates various phenomena affecting both stressed and
 unstressed vowels in Romance languages. Viola Miglio traces vowel
 changes within this language family, such as those that occurred
 during the Great Vowel Shift. Using examples from Catalan, Mantuan,
 and Portuguese, this book analyzes vowel reduction, including
 "neutralization," which involves a change of vowel quality in
 stressless syllables that favors vowel qualities that are maximally
 distinguishable from one another. This analysis provides
 classifications of vowel reduction phenomena through the interaction
 of markedness constraints, markedness cooccurrence constraints, and
 faithfulness and positional faithfulness constraints.
