Deconstructing the Nuclear Stress Algorithm: Evidence from second language speech *
Based on the English speech of native Spanish speakers, evidence is provided, on the one hand, for an analysis that connects the typology of Nuclear Stress patterns to the (un)availability of unstressed functional words (in particular unstressed auxiliaries), and on the other hand, for the modularity of Nuclear Stress. It is argued that we must distinguish the core Nuclear Stress patterns (generated by a grammatically‐encapsulated algorithm) and the discourse‐sensitive Nuclear Stress patterns (derived by Anaphoric‐Deaccenting followed by Nuclear‐Stress Shift), in the spirit of Reinhart 2006.
