Walter de Gruyter, 2003 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 463 pages
Aiming to enlarge our understanding of the range of variation and the types of change in prosodic systems of languages, this book brings together papers on various aspects of prosodic development from a generative linguistic perspective. It addresses issues like the relationship between tone, stress and quantity, the evidence for prosodic change from metrics, and it discusses the role of analogy, language contact and language acquisition in change. The unique combination of different methodologies and perspectives investigating development in prosodic systems provides the reader a new and broader scope on historical linguistics.
