We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Subject: Tertiary Stress and Optimality Theory


Dear colleagues

As part of my PhD dissertation I am looking at English non-primary stress
in Optimality Theory. I am yet to come across an optimality-theoretic
analysis which distinguishes between different degrees of non-primary
stress, i.e. secondary versus tertiary. Can anyone point me to an OT
analysis (of any language) which formally recognises tertiary stress? Or is
this problematic in OT?

Many thanks
