FONOL: Phonological Programming Language

This directory contains Fonol, a programming language that simulates phonological rules of the sort described in Chomsky and Halle's "Sound Pattern of English" and Schane's "Generative Phonology". It also incorporates the input and output filters (conditions) which came into common use at about the same time. These filters are currently restricted to the identification of a pattern and two actions: preventing the successful application of a specific rule or blocking (starring) the entire derivation.
