I’m writing 1) to add a reference to the work of René Schiering, who has a couple of pertinent publications on the topic;
and 2) to piggyback a little on this question: Is there more recent work on trade-offs between different ways of using the phonological word as a domain for specific prosodic processes (languages without prominent stress seem to have a tendency towards vowel harmony, or tone etc.)?

A friend has asked me if there is any way of determining how many languages in the world are stress/syllable/mora-timed.
Is there a database with this information? Has anybody looked into this question?
