A unified description of confined optical LO, TO and interface phonons is given on the basis of vector "ghost" fields defined in the whole space. These fields are characterized by the relations for longitudinal and transversal fields. Real displacement fields are obtained by introducing confinement conditions. Interface charges and vortices appear due to this procedure.
