Abstract:

Focusing on the phonologies of children with functional (non-organic)speech disorders, this volume reports the latest findings in optimalitytheory, phonological acquisition and disorders. The book is based ontypological, cross-sectional, longitudinal, and experimental evidence fromover 200 children. It stands out because of the unique test case that thepopulation offers to optimality theory, particularly with respect topuzzles of opacity, lawful orders of acquisition, and languagelearnability. Beyond its theoretical significance, this research holdsclinical relevance for the assessment and treatment of disorderedpopulations, most notably the systematic prediction of learning outcomes.The volume bridges the gap between theory and application by showing howeach informs the other. It is intended for linguists, psychologists,speech pathologists, second-language instructors and those interested inthe latest developments in phonological theory and its applied extensions.
