Abstract:This paper focuses on the most basic implicational universals in phonological theory, called T-orders after Anttila and Andrus (2006). It shows that the T-orders predicted by stochastic and categorical Optimality Theory coincide. Analogously, the T-orders predicted by stochastic and categorical Harmonic Grammar coincide. In other words, these stochastic constraint-based frameworks do not tamper with the typological structure induced by the corresponding categorical frameworks.
