Generative approach, whether standard generative approach or Optimality Theory is the dominant view in phonological research while phonological works within other approaches have been sparse. However regarding the fact that cognitive approach is a competitor to generative approach, in this research generative phonology is briefly introduced. To do so, two views are presented: Lakoff (1989), which is the first step in cognitive phonology, and Nesset (2008), which is a more recent and systematic view to this approach. This research shows that researchers in cognitive phonology are not unanimous in presenting an integrated framework and method of analysis.
