Working Papers in Linguistics 17.
University of Trondheim Working Papers in Linguistics, n17 1993
In this volume, five working papers are presented. "Accessing Contexts with Intonation" (Thorstein Fretheim) discusses the use of intonation as a tool for understanding the context of an utterance, particularly in combination with reference. Examples are offered in Norwegian. In "'Altsa' and 'Nemlig': Two Views of Causality" (Ildiko Vasko), some functions of two Norwegian particles are discussed and it is proposed that, as modal particles, they point to a cause-effect relationship between propositions. "A Few Notes on Anatomy and Distinctive Features in NTS Handshapes" (Irene Greftegreff) suggests changes in current terminology concerning the Norwegian sign language system, based on general phonological and anatomical usage. "A Note of Ternary Stress in Sentani" (Curtis Rice) argues that this stress system in the Sentani language shows a pattern that is derived with a specific foot type. "A Dependency Phonology Analysis of Some Aspects of the Saami Language" (Lisa An Work) argues for a reduction in the phonological rules of one dialect of the Lappish language. The essay includes a phonemic inventory of the dialect. Each paper contains references. (MSE)
