We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate. In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Word Stress/Accent in the Languages of Eurasia
Message 1: Word Stress/Accent in the Languages of Eurasia
From: Harry van der Hulst <harryvanderhulstuconn.edu>
Subject: Word Stress/Accent in the Languages of Eurasia
I'm writing an article that surveys the word stress/word accent in the
languages of Eurasia. This article will be part of a volume with chapters
on different continents/areas of the world.
I'm looking for surveys of language families/groups in the relevant areas
that include information on this subject, however minimal. I'm not doing
tonal systems, but the presence of lexical tone does not exclude the
presence of stress of accent.
