Abstract:

Luigi Burzio's Principles of English Stress challenges many of the
assumptions that have underpinned the generative description of English
stress and more generally 'standard' metrical theory. Central to Burzio's
analysis is a novel typology of metrical constituents that includes ternary
feet and excludes monosyllabic feet. The analysis is essentially
nonderivational in character: principles of well-formedness check for the
presence of stress and weight in the output. The principles themselves are
organized into a hierarchy consisting of a hardcore-controlling foot form
that in cases of conflict may override principles of metrical consistency
and alignment of edges. The interplay among these competing principles
accounts for the cyclic effects of the standard theory. A special role is
accorded phonetically null syllables that analyse hidden metrical structure
to preserve a simple foot inventory and sharply curtail the standard
theory's extrametricality.

"The ideas explored in Principles of English Stress are highly original,
the analysis is remarkably comprehensive, the arguments are lucidly
presented and will surely prompt a serious reconsideration of many central
tenets of metrical stress theory." Michael Kenstowicz, Massachusetts
Institute of Technology
