- Metrical Prosody presents a rhythmic theory of phrasal phonology in an optimality theoretical framework. The theory departs radically from what is considered to constitute the standard approach to phrasal phonology, i.e. the syntax-to-prosody mapping approach. Helsloot argues that phrasal phonology depends rather on the distinction between lexical words and grammatical words on the one hand, and on principles of metrical minimality and metrical maximality on the other.
