Abstract:

In Slavic Prosody Professor Bethin gives a coherent account of the Slavic
languages at the time of their differentiation and relates these
developments to issues in phonological theory. First Professor Bethin
argues that the syllable structure of Slavic changed before the fall of the
jers and suggests that intrasyllabic and intersyllabic reorganization in
Late Common Slavic was far more significant for Slavic prosody than the
loss of weak jers. She then makes a case for the existence of a bisyllabic
prosodic domain in Late Common Slavic and trochaic metrical organization.
Finally, she explores the implications of Slavic data for phonological
theory, discussing sonority, skeletal structure, the representation of
length and prominence, and language typology in some detail.

The book is a rich in information, Slavicists will enjoy the thorough
historiography of their field; non-Slavicists will appreciate the detailed
explications of Slavic data; all will welcome the many clear diagrams
spelling out the author's claims....no one can deny that her book is a
major contribution, an accomplishment that neither Slavicists nor
phonlogists can afford to ignore. Slavic Review
