Reassessing the Role of the Syllable in Italian Phonology
An Experimental Study of Consonant Cluster Syllabification, Definite Article Allomorphy, and Segment Duration
This book evaluates the predictions of syllable-based analyses of Italian in three domains: native speaker intuition of consonant cluster syllabification, definite article allomorphy, and segment duration, and tests the claimed convergence of multiple phenomena on the same syllable structure.
