Series Title: Advances in Optimality Theory

The theory of prosodic hierarchy, proposed and developed by a series of work
by Elisabeth O. Selkirk at the University of Massachusett at Amherst, has been
one of the most important areas of research within phonological theory in the
past few decades. This collection of original articles, dedicated to Selkirk,
address a number of aspects of the theory using evidence from languages as
diverse as Arabic, Berber, Chadic, Dutch, English, French, German, Japanese,
Korean, and Russian.
