Key aspects of declarative phonology

By James M Scobbie, John S Coleman and Steven Bird


Constraints are a major component in many phonological theories, past and present. They are exploited to their full in Declarative Phonology. It is worthwhile to briefly state some general considerations about the circumstances which have led to their ubiquitous use
