Implicationally Related Error Patterns and the Selection of Treatment Targets.
Dinnsen, Daniel A.; O'Connor, Kathleen M.
Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools, v32 n4 p257-70 Oct 2001
This article compares different claims that have been made concerning acquisition by transitional rule-based derivation theories and by optimality theory. Case studies of children with phonological delays are examined. Error patterns are argued to be implicationally related and optimality theory is shown to offer a principled explanation.
