Book: The Mother of All Tableaux

Chapter: EST: The MOAT and its EPOs

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.38356


The concept of the MOAT is developed through analysis of the EST. From the key notion of a Border Point Pair, order and equivalence relations between grammars emerge, generalizing the notion of constraint and determining all the possible numerical representations of a typology in Violation Tableaux.
