The two volumes of the Phonological Spectrum aim at giving a
comprehensive overview of current developments in phonological theory,
by providing a number of papers in different areas of current
theorizing which reflect on particular problems from different
angles. Volume II deals with phonological structure above the
segmental level, in particular with syllable structure, metrical
structure and sentence-level prosodic structure. Different syllable
structure theories, as well as possible relations between segment
structure and syllabic structure, and evidence from language
acquisition and aphasia are examined in section 1. Metrical structure
is examined in papers on foot structure, and, experimentally, on word
stress in Indonesian. Finally in this volume, there are three
laboratory-phonological reports on the intonation of Dutch.
