Anyone looked at stress-timing vs. syllable-timing and mora-timing? The
problem is, the only hints of references I've found, besides the stuff
in Trask[*], says that it is no longer called that, but not what it is
called instead (yohoo...) The stress-database[+] lists the stress of
french and latin, which I thought was syllable-timed, but lacks data
for japanese, which is mora-timed. So: are there any non-stress-timed
languages? Are there any good (as in good coverage) online resources?
Any collected offline resources, so one hasn't have to look through a
zillion books for a handful of facts? I have access to a university
library but I simply don't have the time to read linguistics all day
long, fun as it might be.
