  4. Interactions between Markedness and Faithfulness Constraints in Vowel Systems

    By Viola Giulia Miglio

    Series: Outstanding Dissertations in Linguistics

    Miglio argues that to assess the relative markedness of a segment, frequency of occurrence in vowel inventories is insufficient when considered on its own. In its analysis of the Great Vowel Shift, this book elaborates a more useful model of a unitary change even in a surface-oriented theory such...

    A Type-Logical Investigation

    By Neil Whitman
