Marginal Contrasts

Pavel Iosad, Guest Editor     Daniel Hall, Guest Editor    
Collection launched: 06 Dec 2016

The Contrastivist Hypothesis states that phonology only operates on features required to express lexical contrasts. The existence of ‘marginal’ contrasts challenges the contrastivist approach. This collection seeks to clarify the relevant notion of ‘contrast’ and define the relationship between the Contrastivist Hypothesis and other factors shaping observable phonological patterns.
