CONSTRAINT INTERACTION AND WRITING SYSTEMS TYPOLOGY

Abstract : The aim of this contribution is to analyze differences between writing systems from the perspective of Optimality Theory, a linguistic framework based on the interaction of a set of violable constraints, generally grounded in perception, production or cognition. In particular, this article proposes optimal theoretic analyses of the following phenomena: vowel and consonant length representation, Spelling Pronunciation, Eye Dialect. It is shown that the current approach is able to account for differences across writing systems, yet highlighting their similarities as well.
