Title: Pitch Accent Phenomena in Standard Japanese
Written By: Yuko Yoshida
URL: http://www.hagpub.com
Series Title: SOAS Dissertations in Linguistics 1
Description:

This thesis contains three major proposals. First, the work as a whole is devoted to expansion of the notion of phonological licensing domain from the domain of a syllabic constituent and a combination of constituents (Kaye, Lowenstamm and Vergnaud 1990) to that of a word, and to that of various types of phrases. The second claim relates to the formalisation of accent assignment in Standard Japanese, based on binary right-headed licensing between nuclei. The second point leads directly to the third issue, the clarification of prosodic typology: tone languages vs. stress/pitch accent languages.
