This paper investigates the computational grounding of learning theories developed within a metrical phonology approach to stress assignment. In current research, the Principles and Parameters approach to learning stress is pervasive. We point out some inherent problems associated with this approach in learning the stress system of a particular language by setting parameters (the case of Dutch), which is shown to be an inherently noisy problem. The paper focuses on two aspects of this problem… CONTINUE READING
