Abstract:

In Localism versus Globalism in Morphology and Phonology, David Embick 
offers the first detailed examination of morphology and phonology from a 
phase-cyclic point of view (that is, one that takes into account recent 
developments in Distributed Morphology and the Minimalist program) and the 
only recent detailed treatment of allomorphy, a phenomenon that is central to 
understanding how the grammar of human language works. In addition to 
making new theoretical proposals about morphology and phonology in terms 
of a cyclic theory, Embick addresses a schism in the field between 
phonological theories such as Optimality Theory and other (mostly syntactic) 
theories such as those associated with the Minimalist Program. He presents 
sustained empirical arguments that the localist view of grammar associated 
with the Minimalist program (and Distributed Morphology in particular) is 
correct, and that the Globalism espoused by many forms of Optimality 
Theory is incorrect. In the "derivational versus nonderivational" debate in 
linguistic theory, Embick's arguments come down squarely on the derivational 
side.

Determining how to make empirical comparisons between such large 
positions, and the different frameworks that embody them, is at the heart of 
the book. Embick argues that patterns of allomorphy implicate general 
questions about locality and specific questions about the manner in which 
(morpho)syntax relates to (morpho)phonology. Allomorphy thus provides a 
crucial test case for comparing Localist and Globalist approaches to 
grammar.
