(Kiparsky 1982: 8) Kiparsky makes the further assumption that every lexical entry, and the output of every layer of derivation, is an identity rule L, where the structural description and structural change of L are both L.

Kiparsky, as we have seen, proposed three levels for English; Halle and Mohanan (1985) argue for four. The lack of any principled limitation on the number of lexical levels proposed has cast serious doubts on the validity of LP; it would be theoretically possible, for instance, to propose a level for every rule, or some arbitrary number of levels with all rules applying on all levels.
