Book Description

The typology of syllable and word languages is based on a multi-layered and hierarchically structured phonological model. The main claim is that the phonological make-up of a language depends on the relevance of the prosodic categories – with the syllable and the phonological word being typologically most important. The contributions discuss theoretical issues and provide synchronic and diachronic analyses of (Non-)Indo-European languages.
