Abstract:

This book presents a detailed and enlightening examination of the
effects of duration and sonority on the pattens of positional
restriction of contour tones. Through a typological survey and
analysis of 187 genetically diverse languages the author challenges
the theoretical standpoint from which the problem has been
traditionally addressed and adds to the growing amount of data which
places the dichotomy between phonology and phonetics into
question. The results of this rigorous investigation are, the author
argues, inexpressible in traditional phonology and requires an
innovative collapsing of the older model's operative distinction. This
new theoretical model allows the author to provide a hitherto
unavailable accounting of contour tones, but also represents a major
theoretical contribution in its own right.
