Title:Towards a Framework for Bidirectional Optimality Theory in Dynamic Contexts
Authors:Anton Benz
Abstract:In this paper we study context-sensitive versions of
bidirectional Optimality Theory (OT). We discuss a
problem presented by Jason Mattausch which shows that
context-sensitivity may lead into circularity. In order to
be able to represent it we introduce a fundamental
structure for bidirectional OT which we call Blutner
structure. The discussion of Mattausch's Example leads us
to combine bidirectional OT with Dynamic Semantics.
