Abstract:The phonetic and functional analysis of syllable weight accounts for the previously unexplained asymmetry between heavy CVV and CVC syllables in their distribution: CVV counts as heavy in any position of a word, while CVC counts as heavy only in languages with phonemic vowel length synchronically or historically; and CVC counts as heavy only in three positions---initial, penultimate, antepenultimate---where positional lengthening was reported (Oller 1973, Klatt 1975).
