This paper discusses the syntactic function of Nuclear Stress Rule (NSR) in Chinese; it is argued that the NSR is a central mechanism developed in the theory of prosodic syntax under which the interface effects between prosody and syntax are derived. It is shown that the NS not only carries the normal sentential stress but also manifests wide scope focus by: 1.   Sentential stress is thus determinedthrough an interplay between two components, the default Sentential StressRule and the Focus Stress Rule. Syntactic phenomena are not, the authorargues, triggered by phonology or prosodic motivations: the relationshipbetween syntax and phonology is always from syntax to phonology.

This book explores the nature of sentential stress, how it is assigned, and its interaction with information structure. The central thesis is that the position of sentential or nuclear stress — the element with the highest prominence in the sentence — is determined syntactically and that cross-linguistic differences in this respect follow from syntactic variations.

where a module called \syntax" is prior to another called \phonology." In such a model, the \syntax" produces a linear string, to which stress is assigned ac-cording to metric rules by the phonology. This logically allows for the possibility of the metric rules applying sentential stress to the subject or verb in transitive.

Focus (abbreviated FOC) is a grammatical category that determines which part of the sentence contributes new, non-derivable, or contrastive information.

Focus is related to information structure. Contrastive focus specifically refers to the coding of information that is contrary to the presuppositions of the interlocutor.
