Let us begin to evaluate what has happened since 1968 by considering the general nature of the interaction of linked psychological fields that stand in the relationship of "central" or "general" fields of study to developmental study; from this we can obtain some of the perspective that is needed to understand the evolving relationship between phonological theory and child phonology from about 1968 to the present. '^Center'' and 'Periphery'' First, it is more than adult egocentrism that is behind the general equat­ ing of the center of psychological fields with the study of adults and the relegation of developmental studies to that periphery which is otherwise occupied by hyphenated interdisciplines.

Developmentalists are thus under pressure to maximize the sim­ ilarity between their constructs and those used by the center, and tend to follow central theory rather slavishly, especially when their field is young and data are not plentiful.
