Title: The Rhythmic and Prosodic Organization of Edge Constituents: An Optimality-Theoretic Account
Written By: Henrietta J. Hung
Description:

This book addresses the phenomenon traditionally known as Extrametricality, whereby a final constituent is sometimes excluded for the purposes of determining the location of stress. Couched within the framework of Optimality Theory, the analysis suggests that final stress is non-rhythmic, and that depending on the position occupied by such a constraint in the hierarchy of a given grammar, different effects will be observed, one of these being extrametricality. Following examination of several languages exhibiting this phenomenon, a typological analysis is given.
