Hidden generalizations : phonological opacity in optimality theory by John J McCarthy( )

18 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 699 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hidden Generalizations is the first book devoted exclusively to the problem of phonological opacity. Opacity arises when the conditions for or results of an active phonological process are not evident in the speech signal. Opacity is particularly important in Optimality Theory, which lacks the standard means of analyzing opacity, rule ordering."--Jacket
The logical problem of language acquisition by C. L Baker( Book )

15 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of articles and associated discussion papers focuses on a problem that has attracted increasing attention from linguists and psychologists throughout the world during the past several years. Reduced to essentials, the problem is that of discovering the character of the mental capacities that make it possible for human beings to attain knowledge of their language on the basis of fragmentary and haphazard early linguistic experience. A fundamental assumption running through all of these contributions is that people possess strong innate predispositions that are critical for success in this task
Doing optimality theory : applying theory to data by John J McCarthy( Book )

17 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Optimality Theory revolutionized the field of phonology and had a huge impact on linguistics in general when it was first proposed in 1993. In Doing Optimality Theory, one of the key proponents of the theory explains how to do analysis and research using this model. Because the basic premises of OT are markedly different from other linguistic theories, new analytic techniques and new ways of thinking and theorizing are required." "This unique work presents practical, in-depth advice for students in the field in an engaging and accessible way. Numerous questions, specific examples, and exercises throughout are designed to give readers an in-depth understanding of the material. McCarthy summarizes the core concepts of OT to make this an ideal guide for both advanced undergraduate and graduate students, and one that will, by example, lead the way to future developments in the field."--Jacket
Optimality theory in phonology : a reader by John J McCarthy( Book )

19 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Optimality Theory in Phonology: A Reader is a collection of readings on this important new theory by leading figures in the field, starting with a lengthy excerpt from the original source, Prince and Smolensky's never-before-published report Optimality Theory: Constraint Interaction in Generative Grammar. The 33 selections cover a broad range of topics in phonology and include many of the foundational works, some of them revised to reflect the most recent developments. Optimality Theory in Phonology is designed as a text for advanced phonology courses, but is also of interest as a reference work for scholars in the field of linguistics and related disciplines. Each chapter includes introductory notes to set the stage and highlight connections, as well as a list of study and research questions
A thematic guide to optimality theory by John J McCarthy( Book )

19 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and Korean and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book describes optimality theory from the top down, explaining and exploring the central premises of OT and the results of their praxis. Examples are drawn from phonology, morphology, and syntax, but the emphasis throughout is on the theory rather than the examples, on understanding what is special about OT and on equipping readers to apply it, extend it, and critique it in their own areas of interest. To enhance the book's usefulness for researchers in allied disciplines, the topdown view of OT extends to work on first and second language acquisition, phonetics and functional phonology, computational linguistics, historical linguistics, and sociolinguistics. Furthermore, to situate OT for those coming from other traditions, this book also contains much discussion of OT's intellectual origins, its predecessors, and its contemporary competitors. Each chapter concludes with extensive suggestions for further reading, classified by topics, and supplemented by a massive bibliography (over 800 items). The book ends with a list of frequently asked questions about optimality theory, with brief answers and pointers to a fuller treatment in the text
