Metrical and Tonal Phonology of Compounds in Two Chinese Dialects.
Duanmu, San
Language, v71 n2 p225-59 Jun 1995
This study argues that both Shanghai and Taiwanese have a metrical system, that compound stress is left-headed in Shanghai and right-headed in Taiwanese, and that a tonal domain is a metrical one. The article explains some asymmetries between Shanghai and Taiwanese and maintains that metrical structure can be determined when data on phonetic stress is nonexistent. (60 references) (Author/CK)
