... disposition of certain members of a given cseg yet remains perfectly true to that of others. This article addresses the analytical pitfalls of the integer-based contour labeling system by instead adopting a normalized scheme that maps pitches onto evenly distributed subsets of the real numbers from 0 to 1...

..., semiregular, faithful, and diagonal cases, among others. Three general situations arise: First, the commuting group for a group with an action that is merely transitive is isomorphic to the normalizer of a point stabilizer modulo the point stabilizer. Second, the commuting group for a diagonal subgroup...

Part I provides an account of the rules that generate phonological words and phrases in German, the principles that determine the normal placement of stress in words and phrases, and motivations for the abnormal placement of stress. Part II looks at higher-level, facultative structures in prosodic...

... in a circular direction around the space (Figure 12). Figure 13 depicts the path of the counterpoint shown in Example 1. The labels below the counterpoint indicate generalized normal forms, which correspond to points in the OPTIC spaces (Hook 2017). The most spe- cific descriptions are given by the pitch...

...) and the “concrete” one modeled by (050405040504). 5.4.1 A pertinent mathematical relation between the two functions is manifest when we normalize each function, multiplying all function-val- ues by a constant factor that makes the normalized function-values sum to 1. The “abstract” interval function...

... concerning the normative align- ment of meter and grouping. This issue has received a good deal of dis- cussion, particularly regarding the level of the phrase. A number of authors have argued that the normal situation is for meter and grouping to be roughly “in phase” at the phrase level...

It is also a genre through...

Recall from §4.2 that the fundamental region of trichord set-classes is the triangular region graphed in Figure 22. To this two-dimensional region we add a third dimension that cor- responds to normalized similarity...
