SYLLABLE WEIGHT AND SECONDARY STRESS IN ENGLISH SUFFIXAL DERIVATIVES

Abstract : This paper investigates the relationship between syllable weight and secondary stress in a corpus of 1450 English suffixal derivatives. In order to do so, two definitions of syllable weight have been used to code the data and we evaluated whether syllable weight had any impact on stress preservation, as proposed by Pater (1995; 2000). The results indicate that syllable weight has no influence whatsoever on stress preservation, in both definitions of syllable weight under examination.
