Title: Der phonologisch-typologische Wandel des Deutschen von einer Silben- zu einer Wortsprache (The Phonological-Typological Change of German from a Syllable Language to a Word Language)
Written By: Renata Szczepaniak
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/rs/bookSingle.cfm?id=IS-9783110192742-1&l=E
Series Title: Studia Linguistica Germanica 85
Description:

The subject of this volume is the far-reaching phonological change which
the German language has gone through during its history and which has led
to a fundamental typological reorientation of the language. Whereas Old
High German was clearly assigned to the typological pole of syllable
languages, Modern German has developed into a pronounced word language
that disregards the syllable. With the help of this typological model, all
phonological changes can be described far more adequately than ever before.
After introducing the concepts of syllable and word language, the volume
moves on to describe the phonological-typological changes which have taken
place in the history of the German language. Distinguishing features of
this volume are its comprehensibility and numerous examples.
