For instance, in order to have a consistent ranking some W must dominate all L’s. Sara rated it really liked it Aug 18, McCarthy, John and Alan Prince Many versions of Optimality Theory predict this to be impossible see MoretonPrince Moreover, OT is surface-based in the sense that well-formedness constraints evaluate surface forms only — no structural conditions are placed on lexical forms.

This is called freedom of analysis. Lists with This Book. For his role in originating this book, I owe him special thanks. Most OT literature on phonology, for example, assumes the representational alphabet of non-linear metrical and autosegmental phonology.


Two total orders on the constraints of Con could generate the same range of input—output mappings, but differ in the relative ranking of two constraints which do not conflict with each other. Once a candidate incurs a fatal violation, it cannot be optimal, even if it outperforms the other candidates on the rest of Con. Output segments are dependent on having an input correspondent.

Vincent Broman rated it liked it Dec 20, Two successive sibilants are prohibited. By hypothesis, the innateness of UG is what makes grammars so much alike in their basic designs, and what causes the observed developmental similarities. Con is the same in every language. The strictness of strict domination means that a candidate which violates only a high-ranked constraint does worse on the hierarchy than one that does not, even if the second candidate fared worse on every other lower-ranked constraint.


Languages differ in the ranking of constraints; and any violations must be minimal.

Nat Lang Linguist Theory, In the cells where the constraints assess the winner—loser pairs, “W” is placed if the constraint in that optimaloty prefers the winner, “L” if the constraint prefers the loser, and “e” if the constraint does not differentiate between the pair.
