Abstract:

In part I of this volume, experts on various language areas provide surveys
of word stress/accent systems of as many languages in 'their' part of the
world as they could lay their hands on. No preconditions (theoretical or
otherwise) were set, but the authors were encouraged to use the StressTyp
data in their chapters.

Australian Languages (Rob Goedemans), Austronesian Languages (Ellen van
Zanten, Ruben Stoel and Bert Remijsen), Papuan Languages (Ellen van Zanten
and Philomena Dol), North American Languages (Keren Rice), South American
Languages (Sergio Meira and Leo Wetzels), African Languages (Laura
Downing), European Languages (Harry van der Hulst), Asian Languages (Harry
van der Hulst and René Schiering), Middle Eastern Languages (Harry van der
Hulst and Sam Hellmuth).

There is an introductory chapter (Chapter 1) that will provide the reader
with elementary terminology and theoretical tools to understand the variety
of accentual systems that will be discussed in the subsequent chapters of
this book. Chapter 2 has a double function. It presents an overview of
stress patterns in Australian languages, but at the same time it is
intended to (re-)familiarize readers with the coding, terminology and
theoretical ideas of the StressTyp database. Chapter 11 presents
statistical and typological information from the StressTyp database. Part
II of this volume contains 'language profiles' which are, for each of the
511 languages contained in StressTyp (in 2009), extracts from the
information that is contained in the database.

This volume will be of interest to people in the field of theoretical
phonology and language typology. It will function as a reference work for
these groups of researchers, but also, more generally, for people working
on syntax and other fields of linguistics, who might wish to know certain
basic facts about the distribution of word accent systems

Linguistic Field(s): Phonology
                            Syntax
                            Typology
