Linguistic LingField(s):  Linguistic Theories

Query:   In starting the preparations for a PhD research proposal, I have been
thinking over the possibilities of combining these two different
theoretical approaches in a unified account of stress assignment.

My ideas are still in the very early stages - I am thinking of what it might
look like to allow, say, nuclei to license association of starred tones (T*)
to other nuclei; I am only starting now to think of what this might look

I am enquiring as to whether any one familiar with one or the other
theoretical frameworks (or both) has any comments (especially doubts)
concerning the compatability of one theory with the other. Also, if there
is existing literature which explicitly or implicitly touches on the subject
that anyone is aware of, I would be quite grateful for references. I am
definately aware of certain government phonology approaches to
stress assignment, stress licensing and floating CV stress; but I am
curious as to whether anyone has ever gone as far enough to say
(something like) a nucleus licensing association of an autosegment to a
tier containing H*-L for example.
