OT learning

This tutorial describes how you can draw Optimality-Theoretic and Harmonic-Grammar tableaus and simulate Optimality-Theoretic and Harmonic-Grammar learning with Praat.

You can read this tutorial sequentially with the help of the “< 1” and “1 >” buttons.

1. Kinds of grammars (ordinal and stochastic, OTGrammar)
2. The grammar
    2.1. Viewing a grammar (NOCODA example, OTGrammarEditor)
    2.2. Inside the grammar (saving, inspecting)
    2.3. Defining your own grammar
    2.4. Evaluation (noise)
    2.5. Editing a grammar
    2.6. Variable output (place assimilation example)
    2.7. Tableau pictures (printing, EPS)
    2.8. Asking for one output
    2.9. Output distributions
3. Generating language data
    3.1. Data from a pair distribution
    3.2. Data from another grammar (tongue-root-harmony example)
4. Learning an ordinal grammar
5. Learning a stochastic grammar
6. Shortcut to grammar learning
7. Learning from overt forms
