Abstract:

This monograph presents an experimental and theoretical inquiry into the role of
sentential form and variation in the prosodic structure of Catalan. The empirical
section examines intonational phrasing across sentence forms, including SVO
structures with either nominal or sentential objects and structures involving
clitic left- and right-dislocations. The results show variation in phrasing that
depends on syntactic factors and non-syntactic factors such as topic-hood and
prosodic binarity. The theoretical section uses Stochastic Optimality Theory to
model the variation and frequency distributions associated with the observed
prosodic patterns. Various syntactic and non-syntactic factors are represented by
alignment constraints, which play a major role in Catalan, and by constraints
that limit size and those that limit the overall amount of prosodic
structure.This study represents a combined approach to prosody and syntax and is
of particular relevance for theoretical and empirical linguists interested in
the relationship between these domains both in Catalan and other languages.
