Subject: Italian prosody

I would like to add something to the summary I posted on Italian prosody.
Firstly, I forgot to mention Elise Hofhuis among the people I wish to
thank for their help (sorry, Elise).
Secondly, I was asked for the complete titles of the refs I gave in
shortened form, and the exact refs of papers by Lori Repetti I mentioned
in the summary.
Here they are (thanks to Lori)
