Abstract

Ternary stress patterns in Italian varieties is analysed in this paper, and particular attention is devoted to non-lexical stress assignment. On the base of this kind of data, the proposal is advanced that antepenultimate stress in these languages should non be forced into binary structure. In the second part of the paper, ternary stress hypothesis is checked in the light of quantitative phenomena concerning some Southern Italian dialects, in which the position of lexical stress affects the length of the stressed vowel.
