Ch.12: The interaction of tone, sonority, and prosodic structure by Paul de Lacy


"The aim of this chapter is to link the major aspects of suprasegmental phonology discussed in this part of the Handbook (i.e. tone Yip Ch.10, Gussenhoven Ch.11; sonority Zec Ch.8; prosodic structure Zec Ch.8, Kager Ch.9). It shows how sonority and tone can both influence and be influenced by prosodic structure."
