  • The present paper proposes a theory of dual prominence in tone mapping. Evidence is drawn from tone movement observed in the lexical tone sandhi of the Chinese Zhenhai dialect. In this theory, two prominent positions, prosodic edge and metrical head, are singled out in phonology. They are referred to by both positional faithfulness and positional markedness constraints in an Optimality-Theoretic analysis of tone movement. Most tone sandhi processes in Chinese Wu dialects are characterized as… CONTINUE READING
