- The present study claims that weight is a major linguistic variable crucial to the explanation of such linguistic phenomena as stress, length, order, and rhythm. It also suggests that the weight variable plays a key role in language processing. Although our discussion is confined mostly to English, most of our claims may be applicable mutatis mutandis to other languages as well.
