The phonology-phonetics interface can be described in terms of cue constraints.
This paper illustrates the workings of cue constraints in interaction with each other and in
interaction with other classes of constraints. Beside their general usefulness in describing
prelexical perception and phonetic implementation, cue constraints help to account for
special phenomena such as poverty of the base, the prototype effect, foreign-language
perception, and loanword adaptation.
