The article discusses models of synchronic and diachronic phonology and suggests changes in them. The basic generative model of phonology is outlined with the author's reinterpretations. The systematic phonemic level is questioned in terms of its unreality with respect to linguistic performance and its lack of validity with respect to historical phonology. The hypothesis is presented that the set of all possible historical changes equals the set of all possible phonological rules. A revision is suggested for this hypothesis and a proof is proposed for it. (KL)
