Abstract

Current published accounts of Winnebago accent in metrical frameworks are based on insufficient data and so fail to characterize correctly the accent patterns of Winnebago words. Among recent work Halle and Vergnaud (1987) has been especially influential; that work follows the lead of Hale and White Eagle (1980) in recognizing an important distinction between epenthetic vowels that interrupt preassigned structure and those that do not. However, I will show in this paper that any metrical account using right-headed binary constituents will have to resort to some ad hoc device to handle the behavior of words beginning with underlying obstruent-resonant clusters.
