Prosodic Typology II

Oxford University Press

This chapter introduces a new model of prosodic typology by classifying languages in terms of three parameters: prominence type (head, edge, head/edge), word prosody (stress, tone, lexical pitch accent, none), and macro-rhythm (a tonal rhythm formed within an Intonation Phrase). Various criteria defining the degree of macro-rhythm are suggested.

Keywords:   macro-rhythm, tonal-rhythm, word segmentation, micro-rhythm, prosodic typology
