Title:From phonological typology to the development of receptive and productive phonological competence: Applications of minimal violation
Authors:Joe Pater
Abstract:This paper follows Smolensky (1996) in attributing developmental

differences between receptive and productive phonological competence

to the operation of a single Optimality Theoretic grammar.

On the basis of evidence from developmental speech perception, however,

it is proposed that structural constraints apply to both lexical and

surface representations. Differences between receptive and productive

competence are captured as differences in ranking between two sets of

faithfulness constraints: those that apply in perception, and those

that apply in production.
