Yidiny stress: a metrical account

Nash, David


The stress patterns of words in the Yidiny language of north Queensland were described by Dixon (1977a,b), in combination is rules of vowel lengthening and truncation. Here an account of the stress patterns is given in Liberman & Prince's (1977) theory of metrical stress, along with some observations additional to Dixon's.
