If one examines the runic, Greek, and Latin alphabets on... more...

  • A Phonetically-Motivated Phonological Analysis of Syllable Weight and Stress in the Norwegian Languageby S.L. Anya Lunden

    The Edwin Mellen Press 2010; US$ 149.95

    This study advances a theory of weight in which a syllable shape in a given position is only heavy if it, on average, is sufficiently proportionally longer than a CV (consonant-vowel) in the same position. While the analysis of weight is consistent with the basic tenets of moraic theory, a departure is made from standard moraic theory which takes moras... more...

  • Derivations and Evaluationsby Hans Broekhuis

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 168.00

    This study shows that Scandinavian object shift and so-called A-scrambling in the continental Germanic languages are the same, and aims at providing an account of the variation that we find with respect to this phenomenon by combining certain aspects of the Minimalist Program and Optimality Theory. More specifically, it is claimed that representations... more...
