Title:Constraints and Constraint Hierarchy of Syllabification in Latin
Authors:Bin Li
Abstract:Optimality Theory (OT), which is the latest development of generative grammar, and is the improvement and development of classical generative phonology, defines language as a system of conflicting forces with constraint and constraint hierarchy (H) as its core. OT analysis of Latin syllabification could not only help us found universality of constraints in syllabification of human languages, but also testify the universality of syllabification constraints found by previous researchers.
