The dynamics of the nonlinear excitations in a two-dimensional (2D) φ4-diatomic lattice, with nonlinear on-site electron-phonon coupling at the polarizable ion site has been presented, without considering the self consistent phonon approximation. One of the major results obtained from our calculations is in the understanding of continuous structural phase transition, where we have obtained the minimum in soft mode frequency at a soft mode temperatureTs (>Tc), not at critical temperatureTc. This occurs due to the anisotropy of such 2D systems.
