Abstract [en]

This paper presents a study of prosodic phras-ing in a non-tonal dialect of Kammu, a Mon-Khmer language spoken in Northern Laos. Prosodic phrasing is seen as correlated with syntactic and informational structures, and the description is made referring to these two lev-els. The material investigated comprises sen-tences of different lengths and syntactic struc-tures, uttered by seven male speakers. It is found that, based on prosodic cues, the distinc-tion between prosodic utterance and prosodic phrase can be made. Prosodic phrase is sig-naled by a sequence of low + high pitch while the right edge of the prosodic utterance gets low pitch. This low terminal is replaced by a high terminal in expressive speech. The study is performed using elicited speech.
