Colorado Research in Linguistics, Number Two.
Bell, Alan; And Others
This document contains three reports in prepublication form on research conducted by linguists at the University of Colorado. The first paper presents an argument against the theories concerning the concept of the distributional syllable. Such theories are based on the assumptions that the syllable can and should be defined formally, without reference to phonetic realization and that the syllable is not an independent unit, but rather is derivable from the distributional properties of segments. The author argues that the theories based on these assumptions do not exhibit a reasonable conformity with the phonetic facts and that they cannot provide a basis for generalizations about phenomena beyond those for which they were specifically intended. The purpose of the second paper is to prove that stress in Aragonese is a completely predictable phenomenon and to postulate a stress rule that will account for the various stress patterns of Aragonese. The final paper considers the Russian verb "byt" and sees in it four different verbs according to the four different functions that it performs. (VM)
