Abstract:

Paradigm uniformity has a long tradition in pre-generative linguistics but
until recently played a minor role in theoretical phonology. Optimality
Theory has drawn renewed attention to paradigmatic effects, formalized by
constraints comparing the surface pronunciation of morphologically related
words. The ten chapters in this volume illustrate how a wide range of
exceptions to regular phonological processes can be explained in this
fashion. The chapters address such important theoretical questions as: do
paradigms have a morphological base? If so, how is it defined? Why do
paradigmatic effects hold for only certain subsets of words? In which areas
of the grammar are paradigmatic effects likely to be found? The authors
discuss new data from the synchronic grammars of a wide variety of
unrelated languages, including: Modern Hebrew, Chimwiini and Jita (Bantu),
Halkomelem (Salish), Hungarian, and Arabic.
