Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: The Prosody-Morphology Interface
Edited By: René Kager
Wim Zonneveld
Harry van der Hulst

In many languages, word formation is restricted by principles of prosody
that organize speech sounds into larger units such as the syllable. Written
by an international team of leading linguists in the field of prosodic
morphology, this book examines a range of key issues in the interaction of
word formation and prosody. It provides an explanation for nonconcatenative
morphology that occurs in different forms (such as reduplication) in many
languages, by an interaction of independent general principles of prosodic
and morphological well-formedness.
