Mamainde Stress: The Need for Strata (SIL International and the University of Texas at Arlington Publications in Linguistics, Vol. 122)
Stress plays an important role in the phonology, morphology, and syntax of Mamaindé. The author uses the current theories of metrical and lexical phonology to analyze this stress system. It is demonstrated that a typical application of metrical rules alone will not predict stress correctly. Instead, Mamaindé must make use of multiple strata in order for...
Stress plays an important role in the phonology, morphology, and syntax of Mamaindé. The author uses the current theories of metrical and lexical phonology to analyze this stress system. It is demonstrated that a typical application of metrical rules alone will not predict stress correctly. Instead, Mamaindé must make use of multiple strata in order for stress placement to be predicted.
