Several arguments are presented in support of this position, such as the fact that, in French, the domain of obligatory prominence is the Phonological Phrase PPhnot the Prosodic Word PWd ; in a PPh consisting of several PWds, therefore, nonfinal PWds can surface without any kind of stress or prominence, suggesting that, at least for non-final PWds, one cannot assume stress or foot structure. Avanzi, M. This relationship, called the modality, can be a priori classified according to various grids and classes, from the simplest involving declaration and interrogation, to more complex ones involving subtle degrees of social relationship, of speech act context, etc. Pergignan: University of Perpignan. The uniqueness of metrical structure: Rhythmic phonotactics in Huariapano.

Language Sciences — A well-known example is the ambiguous sentence "I never said she stole my money", where there are seven meaning changes depending on which of the seven words is vocally highlighted. Language differentiation in early bilingual development. Bisetto eds. Paris: Librairie Delagrave. Specifically, irregular forms in English can be represented as internal clitics, as in Mandarin, whereas regular forms need to be represented as affixal clitics.
