Stress in Bangladeshi Bengoli.
Alam, Samsul
This report discusses the stress patterns of Bengali as spoken in Bangladesh. One of the findings indicate that every word has stress in the first syllable, with additional stress in the first syllable of the first word of the phrase. The Bengali language does not have penultimate and antepenultimate stress. Because there is no rule for changing the stress position or pattern, extrametricality is not required. Further, all verbs end with a vowel, suggesting lack of quantity sensitivity. (MSE)
