    INTRODUCTION. Metrical phonology is the branch of linguistic theory concerned with stress phenomena in natural language. It is distinguished from previous approaches in that it posits a hierarchical structure reminiscent of the structures used in traditional discussions of poetic meter,l hence the name metrical theory. 2.) 2: Case Studies from Austronesia, the Pacific, the Americas, and Theoretical Outlook (Comparatives Handbooks of Linguistics) [Comparative Handbooks of Linguistics] Bernard Comrie, Andrej Malchukov [hardback] [English]3.) A Bibliography of Writings for the History of the English Language Jacek Fisiak (Eds.) [Second edition, hardback]. Stress is the force per unit area on a body that tends to cause it to change shape.. Stress is a measure of the internal forces in a body between its particles. These internal forces are a reaction to the external forces applied on the body that cause it to separate, compress or slide. External forces are either surface forces or body is the average force per unit area that a. This contribution focuses on the spelling of single consonants after a vowel without primary stress — and therefore a short duration — in polysyllabic Dutch words, e.g. kanaal (‘canal’) and dromedaris (‘dromedary’). The single consonant can be explained on the basis of the (Dutch-oriented) standard pronunciation with tense vowels like [a] or [o], but it can also be related to .

Our claims will be largely based on in-depth analyses of two word stress systems: those of English and by: The first is the introduction of a separate level of metrical feet, allowing us to dispense with the feature [+stress].

Its iambic feet show up in non-tonal. His theory addresses particularly problematic areas in metrical work, such as ternary stress and unusual weight distinctions, and he proposes new theoretical accounts of them.

Attempting to take more seriously the claim of generative grammar to be an account of linguistic universals, Hayes proposes analyses for the stress patterns of over Cited by: In this account of metrical stress theory, Bruce Hayes builds on the notion that stress constitutes linguistic rhythm—that stress patterns are rhythmically organized, and that formal structures proposed for rhythm can provide a suitable account of stress.

Through an extensive typological survey of word stress rules that uncovers widespread asymmetries, he identifies a. Metrical phonology is a theory of stress or linguistic prominence. The innovative feature of this theory is that the prominence of a unit is defined relative to other units in the same phrase.

Metrical theory recognizes differences between primary and non-primary stresses, sometimes within the same language. In serial theories, this has often led to a parametric approach in derivation: some languages are ‘top-down’, with the primary stress assigned first, while other languages are ‘bottom-up’, where foot construction precedes primary stress : Kathryn Pruitt.
