Title: Tonal Accents in Norwegian
Subtitle: Phonology, morphology and lexical specification
Written By: Allison Wetterlin
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110234374-1
Series Title: Linguistische Arbeiten 535
Description:

"Tonal accents in Norwegian: Phonology, morphology and lexical
specification" breaks from the traditional and contemporary analyses of
word accent in North Germanic with the goal of providing a more simplex and
unified morphophonological analysis of word accents in North Germanic. It
gives the facts of accent distribution in Standard East Norwegian,
discusses how three of the more recent and most important analyses of
accent assignment in Norwegian and Swedish deal with these facts and
provides an alternative analysis. Given that many Accent 1 words are loans,
the book also discusses how loanword incorporated in East Norwegian and
other North Germanic dialects and the question of why loans predominantly
bear Accent 1.

Although the focus of the book is word accent assignment in Standard East
Norwegian, it also refers to Central Swedish and Old Norse. In this way, it
accounts for many aspects of accent assignment, the true nature of which
might have gone undetected had only one of the North Germanic language been
taken into consideration.

The book also dedicates one chapter to the phonetics of the tonal contrast.
Addressing the question of how perceptually salient the tonal contrast is.
