Number of Canonical Syllable Types: A Continuous Bivariate Model

Abstract

The paper is focused on theoretical modelling of the number of canonical syllable types. In particular, a special emphasis is laid on the frequency of canonical syllable types in different languages. A mathematical model which is able to capture them is developed. The new model is a generalization of previous approaches and it has more realistic assumptions… (More)
