The first part of a two-part series, this study outlines an experimental model of Hungarian word order in the framework of Optimality Theory (OT). While representatives of mainstream generative theory have widely and thoroughly studied Hungarian syntax, little effort has been made to challenge successive models of this influential paradigm. Applying a radical version of syntactic OT proposed by Newson (2000, 2004), the present work abandons phrase structure representations to rely solely on a purely optimality theoretic device, a set of violable alignment constraints that govern linear relations between individual words.
