3.2.3 - More Complex Polysyllabic Words

Obviously not all polysyllabic words have only one stress. Many have two or more. The WORD RULE explains how to build up the tree structures of words with more than one s; here again, the rule emphasizes the way stress is relative and hierarchical. Liberman states the Word Rule as follows: "In a pair of sister nodes N1 N2, N2 is s if and only if it branches" (Liberman, "On Stress and Linguistic Rhythm" 268). A node is a branch of a tree structure above the first level of w's and s's. Sister nodes are branches at the same level of analysis. Compare the branching and stress patterns in "execute" and "execution." In "execute," N2 does not branch so the stress falls on "ex." In "execution," both "ex" and "cu" are s at the first level of analysis. But here N2 does branch, making the strongest stress fall on "-cution," as indicated by the s at the second level of analysis.
