(12) Structure of Optimality Theory: a. CON: a universal set of constraints, b. a language specific “ranking” of those constraints. endobj Optimality theory confronts these issues directly, designing its basic architecture to deal with them. Markedness is built into grammars in the form of universal output constraints which directly state marked or unmarked patterns, for example: ‘front vowels are unrounded’ or ‘syllables are open’. OT differs from other approaches to phonological analysis, such as autosegmental phonology and linear phonology, which typically use rules rather than constraints. Optimality Theory was introduced in the 1990s by linguists Alan Prince and Paul Smolensky (Optimality Theory: Constraint Interaction in Generative Grammar, 1993/2004).Though originally developed from generative phonology, the principles of Optimality Theory have also been applied in studies of syntax, morphology, pragmatics, language change, and other areas. xڽ\�n��}��l�}���fy�����53+Y1���aW�x$���z�nqج�˩S��g�{�gg�����br�S�R|�����m����h���N��y��ѽ������d��s?����~���������0��Lw����_���������y\Pm!�i�]�ݴ��-=����,c��ry�/�e�q���,�~�B�1���`%�d�J������{���Z؇Y�f�b���5í�i�Xs6j��a1��Xm�'sq�?��93���yV��J�J����]u`�Y&T��j��^2����h{Ǯ�Q�販���.

Some of the basic motivations behind OT are to create a model for language analysis that is fairly generalizable and accounts for aspects of Universal Grammar (McCarthy, 2007). 5 0 obj It was originally conceived as an alternative to Generative Phonology, but it has been extended to syntax and other domains of linguistics. 12 0 obj $79.95 cloth, $44.95 paper. This article surveys the motivations for OT, its core principles, and the basics of analysis. endobj Optimality Theory is a way of understanding how the human mind generates language. Optimality Theory (OT) is a linguistic theory that provides a means of analyzing language in terms of ranked constraints instead of rule ordering. The fundamental idea behind OT is that surface forms of language. 1 Abstract 2 The mechanism of constraint re-ranking basis makes Optimality Theory a typologically oriented 3 theory of phonology. Excerpt. (15) But GEN can produce anything! In biology, optimality models are a tool used to evaluate the costs and benefits of different organismal features, traits, and characteristics, including behavior, in the natural world.

OT is a theory of constraint interaction in grammar, which aims to solve a couple of problems that have confronted generative phonological theory since its earliest days. 815 Conclusion. << /ProcSet [ /PDF /Text ] /ColorSpace << /Cs1 5 0 R >> /Font << /F2.0 (13) NASAL Vowels are nasalized before a nasal consonant. The optimality conditions are derived by assuming that we are at an optimum point, and then studying the behavior of the functions and their derivatives at that point. Download Optimality Theory books, The introduction of Optimality Theory (OT) by Prince and Smolenski in 1995 is frequently seen as the most important development in generative grammar of the 1990s. Languages differ in the ranking of constraints; and any violations must be minimal. This book describes Optimality Theory from the top down, explaining and exploring the central premises of OT and the results of their praxis. %PDF-1.3
