Title: Accent Matters
Subtitle: Papers on Balto-Slavic accentology
Edited By: Tijmen Pronk
Rick Derksen
URL: http://www.rodopi.nl/senj.asp?BookId=SSGL+37
Series Title: Studies in Slavic and General Linguistics Vol. 37
Description:

The accentual systems of the Baltic and Slavic languages continue to
intrigue scholars of general and historical linguistics. They play an
important role in the reconstruction of the linguistic ancestor of Baltic
and Slavic, but also in the typological study of accentual systems. This
volume contains contributions related to the accentology of the Baltic and
Slavic languages by leading scholars in the field. They discuss the
accentual systems that are attested in Baltic and Slavic dialects and
texts, and the historical developments that led to these systems. The
volume further contains contributions on similar accentual systems and
developments in other languages, such as Abkhaz and the Mordvinian
languages. A number of papers also deal with the role of the Balto-Slavic
accents in the reconstruction of Proto-Indo-European. The volume reflects
the progress that has been made in the field of Baltic and Slavic
accentuation during the last decades. It forms a major source for anyone
interested in the latest developments and insights in the study of
accentuation.
