The typology of syllable and word languages is based on a multi-layered and hierarchically structured phonological model. The main claim is that the phonological make-up of a language depends on the relevance of the prosodic categories with the syllable and the phonological word being typologically most important. The contributions discuss theoretical issues and provide synchronic and diachronic analyses of (Non-)Indo-European languages."
