Headedness in Phonology

Headedness is a recent tool in phonological analyses. This Special Collection provides the first state-of-the-art overview, establishing its definition, its role in representations, and its underpinnings. Distinct approaches to headedness can be identified: structural configuration vs. diacritic, multiple heads vs. maximally one, and emergence from phonetics vs. homology to syntax.
