Metrical Phonology: German Sound System.
Tice, Bradley S.
Metrical phonology, a linguistic process of phonological stress assessment and diagrammatic simplification of sentence and word stress, is discussed as it is found in the English and German languages. The objective is to promote use of metrical phonology as a tool for enhancing instruction in stress patterns in words and sentences, particularly in English and German first and second language instruction. Stress is defined by its physical and acoustical correlates, and basic principles of metrical phonology are outlined, using examples from English and drawing on relevant research. Word stress is then further defined within this context. Finally, application of metrical phonology principles to German is illustrated. (MSE)
