Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

The theory of prosodic hierarchy, proposed and developed by a series of work
by Elisabeth O. Selkirk at the University of Massachusett at Amherst, has been
one of the most important areas of research within phonological theory in the
past few decades. This collection of original articles, dedicated to Selkirk,
address a number of aspects of the theory using evidence from languages as
diverse as Arabic, Berber, Chadic, Dutch, English, French, German, Japanese,
Korean, and Russian.
