PROSODIES, in the broad Firthian sense, covers phenomena that extend over
stretches of segmental and featural units that must be examined with
respect to their interaction with other features to fully appreciate their
role in the phonetics and phonology of a given language.

The papers deal with a wide range of subjects, from intonational prominence
and prosodic phrasing to the acoustic properties of segments and features.
PROSODIES significantly broadens our knowledge of languages and dialect
varieties that as yet have not been carefully investigated such as Cairene
and Lebanese Arabic, Catalan including Central Catalan and the insular
dialects of Majorcan, Minorcan and Alguer Catalan, Galician, Italian,
various dialects of Portuguese (Standard European, Northern European, and
Brazilian Portuguese), and different varieties of Argentine Spanish as well
as Peninsular Spanish. However, well-known West Germanic languages,
English, Dutch and German, have not been neglected. Many of the
contributions are the first account of the phenomena addressed in the
language(s) under consideration thus bringing new data to light.

Moreover, most papers take a cross-linguistic or cross-dialectal view
favouring a better understanding of language similarities and differences,
as well as of language variation and change. This approach is crucial in
the case of neighbouring languages/varieties and is an important
contribution to the development of language typologies. And as is
characteristic of the series, the research presented in PROSODIES cover
laboratory approaches as well as theoretical investigations.
