This introductory chapter provides a brief historical overview of the sorts of phonological exceptions that paradigm uniformity (and contrast) have been proposed to explain. Section 1.2 discusses the role of paradigms in pre-generative work. Section 1.3 shows how paradigm uniformity effects are captured in traditional rule-based approaches, i.e. in terms of rule ordering and the cycle. Section 1.4 presents a brief comparison of various approaches to paradigm uniformity (and contrast) in the Optimality Theory (OT) framework. Since most of the chapters here are written within that framework, their contribution to current theories of the role of paradigms is discussed in Section 1.4 as well.

Keywords:   phonological exceptions, paradigm uniformity, contrast, pre-generative work
