For instance, classical generative phonology offered a battery of ‘minor rules’, ordering devices, exception mechanisms and other means to come to grips with possibly all minor patterns in a language. An example of this with respect to Hungarian is Vago (1980a). Various recent phonological theories, on the other hand, claim that all of this is outside phonology and should not be covered in a systematic manner at all. A third possibility is that such minor patterns are not ignored altogether but are treated as part of morphology (or accounted for by morphological, rather than phonological, means).
