Description

The author of this chapter concludes that only very few of the specifically minimalist properties of the syntactic generator are necessary for OT's syntax generator, when one exploits OT as interface theory as much as possible. The conception of OT grammar argued for organizes the mapping between semantic, syntactic and phonological/phonetic representations using violable and conflicting mapping constraints.
