Gazdar et al. 1985: 2) Describing linguistic phenomena is one of the central goals of linguistics . . Developing serious explanatory theories of language is impossible in the absence of descriptions of the object of explanation. Understanding the cognitive basis of 16 Kersti Börjars language is impossible in the absence of an adequate cross-linguistic characterization of linguistic behavior. (Van Valin and La Polla 1997: 3) Given what has been said so far about description, pre-theory and theory, the best distinguishing criterion for deciding whether something is a description, or possibly a pre-theoretical description, or indeed a theory seems to rest in its explanatory power.

For OT, there are a number of collections of articles, for instance Legendre et al. (2001) and Sells (2001). For those who are interested in the theoretical properties of different models, I suggest Croft (1995), or, for a more polemical approach, Lappin et al. Description and Theory 31 (2000) and the responses that followed in the same and the next volume of that journal. Adger, David (2003) Core syntax: a minimalist approach. Oxford: Oxford University Press. Borsley, Robert (1999) Syntactic theory: a unified approach.
