Summary This volume investigates the morphosyntactic, semantic, and pragmatic properties of language, and the interactions between them, from the perspective of optimality theory. It integrates optimization processes into the formal and functional study of grammar, interpreting optimization as the result of conflicting, violable ranked constraints
