Stress and Syllabification in English

Auther : Issam M. Abu-Salim

This article deals with the role of stress in the syllabification of intervocalic consonant clusters in simple words in English. It shows that stress plays a singificant role in the syllabification of such clusters, which explains why stressed stllables attract consonants onto their side in violation of certain basic principles of syllabification. The analysis presented in this article explains, among other things, how ambisllabic consonants arise in the course of phonological derivations, and how the process of resyllabification that yields such consonants is triggered by stress.
