Abstract:

This book explores the nature of sentential stress, how it is assigned and
its interaction with information structure. Its central thesis is that the
position of sentential or nuclear stress, the element with the highest
prominence in the sentence, is determined syntactically and that
cross-linguistic differences in this respect follow from syntactic
variations. Presented in a Chomskian multiple spell-out framework, the
author develops the Sentential Stress Rule and provides a systematic way of
accounting for a wide range of cross-linguistic facts, with data taken from
Persian, English, German and Eastern Armenian. The author further proposes
the Focus Stress Rule to handle the interaction between sentential
structure and information structure. Sentential stress is thus determined
through an interplay between two components, the default Sentential Stress
Rule and the Focus Stress Rule. Syntactic phenomena are not, the author
argues, triggered by phonology or prosodic motivations: the relationship
between syntax and phonology is always from syntax to phonology.

This important contribution to understanding processes at the
syntax-phonology interface will interest syntacticians and phonologists at
graduate level and above.
