This volume of new work by prominent phonologists goes to the heart ofcurrent debates in phonological and linguistic theory: should theexplanation of phonological variety be constraint or rule-based and, in thelight of the resolution of this question, how in the mind does phonologyinterface with other components of the grammar. The book includescontributions from leading proponents of both sides of the argument and anextensive introduction setting out the history, nature, and more generallinguistic implications of current phonological theory.
