Following the pattern-discovery phase, we present what linguists call analyses. These analyses entail using a particular theoretical framework such as the rule-based Derivational Theory (DT) or the constraint-based Optimality Theory (OT), formulating rules or constraints, determining rule ordering or constraint ranking and exemplifying analyses with derivations or tableaux, etc. Earlier chapters of the book place greater emphasis on elaborating the observation-and-pattern-discovery step. As the book unfolds, the emphasis is shifted increasingly to the analyses-and-evaluation phase.
