Title: Intonation, Word Order, and Focus Projection in Serbo-Croatian
Written By: Svetlana Godjevac
Series Title: Stanford Monographs in Linguistics
Description:

Research on the English language suggests that the relationship between
phonological prominence, word order, and focus—better known as focus
projection—is mediated through syntax. This book breaks new ground with
its demonstration of how the Serbo-Croatian language shows the workings of
this relationship.

Svetlana Godjevac explores the development of focus projection. Further
distinguishing her work from the numerous studies of the English language,
she analyzes how focus projection in Serbo-Croatian also depends on the
semantic type of the prominence bearing element. This volume is an
innovative analysis of linguistic theory as well as a study of a lesser
examined language.
