- I examine various controversial aspects of Chinese prosody–tone structure,
syllable structure, stress, and intonation–and stress the need to view all of these as
interacting systems, aspects of a hierarchical prosodic structure. I examine various
proposals at these various levels of the hierarchy and suggest which are most
appropriate. Specifically, I suggest the adoption of Baos version of syllable and
tone, and a view of the foot that emphasizes its function as an organizing level in
the prosodic hierarchy while discarding the one stress per foot principle. It is
still not possible to make any definitive claims regarding an optimal model for
intonation, but I examine work done by, amongst others, Kratochvil, Ladd, Shih,
and Garding et al., and suggest promising directions for future work.
