Description

Much of Optimality-theoretic research is concerned with the interaction of constraints, but as the previous chapter lays out, OT analyses require a well defined GEN in addition to a well-defined CON and EVAL. This chapter shows how different definitions of GEN can interact with constraints in ways that are not immediately obvious. I will use different approaches to the analysis of Kinyambo and property analysis of the resulting typologies as a case study to this effect.
