Тон и акцент в бамана: отсутствие корреляции как теоретический вызов

Abstract : Basic information about the tonal system of Bambara is provided: two level tones; classification of syllables into tonally dominant (to which their lexical tone is ascribed) and recessive (without lexical tone). Three types of disyllabic metric feet are singled out: neutral (both syllables have equal status), trochaic (the first syllable has a long vowel, and the second syllable has a short vowel), and iambic (the vowel of the first vowel is usually reduced, and the second one is full-fledged). The second syllable of a iambic foot can be regarded as accentuated, and the first one as non-accentuated, and this opposition cannot be interpreted in the terms of the length contrast. The foot accent displays no correlation with the subdivision of syllables into tonally dominant and recessive.
