The articles focus on stress, syllabification, accent, and vowel harmony, and their interactions with other aspects of language. They include exemplary descriptions of the sound systems of a wide range of languages, cover both synchronic and diachronic analysis, and reflect the author's lifelong interest in typology. The book will interest phonologists, phoneticians, and language typologists throughout the world."--Jacket."
