Series Title: Studies in Generative Grammar 28
Description:

Prosodic Phonology by Marina Nespor and Irene Vogel is now available again.
"Nespor & Vogel 1986" is a citation classic - even after twenty years, it
is still recognized as the standard resource on Prosodic Phonology. This
groundbreaking work introduces all of the prosodic constituents (syllable,
foot, word, clitic group, phonological phrase, intonational phrase and
utterance) and provides evidence for each one from numerous languages.

Prosodic Phonology also includes a chapter in which experimental
psycholinguistic data support the proposed hierarchy. A perceptual study
provides evidence that prosodic constituent structure - not syntactic
constituent structure - predicts whether listeners are able to disambiguate
different types of ambiguous sentences. A chapter on the phonology of
poetic meter examines portions of Dante’s Divine Comedy. It is demonstrated
that the constituents proposed for spoken language also make interesting
predictions about literary metrical patterns.

Prosodic Phonology is an important reference not only for phonologists, but
for all linguists interested in the issue of interfaces among the
components of grammar. It is also a basic resource for psycholinguists and
cognitive scientists working on linguistic perception and language acquisition.
