Prosody and information structure
Segmentation, integration, and in between
In this paper the focus is on syntactic and prosodic structures in a language that is typologically quite different from the majority languages of Europe and Asia. Mohawk, a language of the Iroquoian family, is indigenous to northeastern North America. Examples cited here are drawn from unscripted conversations. Though much of the grammatical structure of Mohawk differs substantially from that of European languages, many of the devices exploited by speakers to shape the flow of information converge.
