Phonetically-Motivated Phonological Analysis of Syllable Weight and Stress in the Norwegian Language
2010 0-7734-3760-6
Advances a theory of weight in which a syllable shape in a given position is only heavy if it, on average, is sufficiently proportionally longer than a CV (consonant-vowel) in the same position. While the analysis of weight is consistent with the basic tenets of moraic theory, a departure is made from standard moraic theory which takes moras to be prosodic units associated directly to segments.
