Title: Rules, Constraints, and Phonological Phenomena
Edited By: Bert Vaux
Andrew Nevins
URL: http://www.oup.com/uk/catalogue/?ci=9780199226511
Description:

This volume of new work by prominent phonologists goes to the heart of
current debates in phonological and linguistic theory: should the
explanation of phonological variety be constraint or rule-based and, in the
light of the resolution of this question, how in the mind does phonology
interface with other components of the grammar. The book includes
contributions from leading proponents of both sides of the argument and an
extensive introduction setting out the history, nature, and more general
linguistic implications of current phonological theory.
