Roberto Bolognesi, 
The phonology of Campidanian Sardinian. A unitary account of a
self-organizing structure.

The phonology of Campidanian Sardinian presents a comprehensive
description and theoretical account of the phonological system of
Southern Sardinian. In addition to a description of the rich variety of
phonological facts of the language, a unitary framework is developed
which is based on three existing theories: the Dependency-based ap-
proach to segmental structure, Metrical Prosody and Optimality
Theory. Major revisions and extensions of the three theories are
proposed which lead to a unitary account of an entire phonological
system, from the segmental level to the level of higher prosodic
