Abstract:

In part I of this volume, experts on various language areas provide surveysof word stress/accent systems of as many languages in 'their' part of theworld as they could lay their hands on. No preconditions (theoretical orotherwise) were set, but the authors were encouraged to use the StressTypdata in their chapters.

Australian Languages (Rob Goedemans), Austronesian Languages (Ellen vanZanten, Ruben Stoel and Bert Remijsen), Papuan Languages (Ellen van Zantenand Philomena Dol), North American Languages (Keren Rice), South AmericanLanguages (Sergio Meira and Leo Wetzels), African Languages (LauraDowning), European Languages (Harry van der Hulst), Asian Languages (Harryvan der Hulst and René Schiering), Middle Eastern Languages (Harry van derHulst and Sam Hellmuth).

There is an introductory chapter (Chapter 1) that will provide the readerwith elementary terminology and theoretical tools to understand the varietyof accentual systems that will be discussed in the subsequent chapters ofthis book. Chapter 2 has a double function. It presents an overview ofstress patterns in Australian languages, but at the same time it isintended to (re-)familiarize readers with the coding, terminology andtheoretical ideas of the StressTyp database. Chapter 11 presentsstatistical and typological information from the StressTyp database. PartII of this volume contains 'language profiles' which are, for each of the511 languages contained in StressTyp (in 2009), extracts from theinformation that is contained in the database.

This volume will be of interest to people in the field of theoreticalphonology and language typology. It will function as a reference work forthese groups of researchers, but also, more generally, for people workingon syntax and other fields of linguistics, who might wish to know certainbasic facts about the distribution of word accent systems

Linguistic Field(s): Phonology                             Syntax                             Typology
