This collection of articles on stress and tone in various Athabaskan languages will interest theoretical linguists and historically oriented linguists alike. The volume brings to light new data on the phonetics and/or phonology of prosody (stress, tone, intonation) in various Athabaskan languages, Chiricahua Apache, Dene Soun'liné, Jicarilla Apache, Sekani, Slave, Tahltan, Tanacross, Western Apache, and Witsuwit’en. As well, some contributions describe how prosody is to be reconstructed for Proto-Athabaskan, and how it evolved in some of the daughter languages.

Table of Contents
“As is clear from [this volume], Athabaskan presents the most carefully documented and best understood cases of tonogenesis outside of Southeast Asia. This will be a volume that all linguists interested in such phonological issues will want to own.”
“[...] an important contribution to the study of Athabaskan linguistics and, more generally, to research on American Indian languages [...] The diversity of topics explored in the book make it clear that Athabaskan languages provide fertile ground for examining a number of complex prosodic issues.”
