Description

Prosodies is a collection of recent papers in phonetics and phonology. It deals with a wide range of subjects like intonation, prosodic phrasing, rhythm, word stress, phrasal prominence, syllable structure, segmental variation and change, and the perception of segments, features, and their acoustic properties. The book is particularly valuable because it focuses on languages largely underrepresented in the literature, e.g., Cairene and Lebanese Arabic, Central Catalan and insular dialects of Catalan, Galician, Italian, Standard and Northern European Portuguese, Brazilian Portuguese, Peninsular Spanish and different varieties of Argentine Spanish.show more
