Abstract:

Prosodic Phonology by Marina Nespor and Irene Vogel is now available again."Nespor & Vogel 1986" is a citation classic - even after twenty years, itis still recognized as the standard resource on Prosodic Phonology. Thisgroundbreaking work introduces all of the prosodic constituents (syllable,foot, word, clitic group, phonological phrase, intonational phrase andutterance) and provides evidence for each one from numerous languages.

Prosodic Phonology also includes a chapter in which experimentalpsycholinguistic data support the proposed hierarchy. A perceptual studyprovides evidence that prosodic constituent structure - not syntacticconstituent structure - predicts whether listeners are able to disambiguatedifferent types of ambiguous sentences. A chapter on the phonology ofpoetic meter examines portions of Dante's Divine Comedy. It is demonstratedthat the constituents proposed for spoken language also make interestingpredictions about literary metrical patterns.

Prosodic Phonology is an important reference not only for phonologists, butfor all linguists interested in the issue of interfaces among thecomponents of grammar. It is also a basic resource for psycholinguists andcognitive scientists working on linguistic perception and language acquisition.
