    A Constructive Solution to the Ranking Problem in Partial Order Optimality Theory
    Journal of Logic, Language and Information 26 (2): 89-108. 2017.
    Partial order optimality theory is a conservative generalization of classical optimality theory that makes possible the modeling of free variation and quantitative regularities without any numerical parameters. Solving the ranking problem for PoOT has so far remained an outstanding problem: allowing for free variation, given a finite set of input/output pairs, i.e., a dataset, \ that a speaker S knows to be part of some language L, how can S learn the set of all grammars G under some constraint …Read more
