Second, CL is an instance of opacity, and opacity is the single biggest conundrum that Optimality Theory faces. This paper addresses both issues and suggests that CL should

We show, first, that the identity con- straints holding among various surface forms must have a limited

during the acquisition process. Studies on language development are primarily couched within the Principles and Parameters (PP) framework (Chomsky 1981) and Optimality Theory (OT, Prince & Smolensky 1993, McCarthy & Prince 1993a, 1993b). According to Chom- sky (1981), Universal Grammar (UG) consists of a

contrast, we entertain the hypothesis that compositional accentuation is dependent on specific modes of morpheme combination. The analysis is couched in the theoretical framework of Optimality Theory (Prince & Smolen- sky 1993, McCarthy & Prince 1994, et seq). The paper is organized as follows: Section 2
