On utterance-final intonation in tonal and non-tonal dialects of Kammu
2009 (English)In: Proceedings of Fonetik 2009, Department of Linguistics, Stockholm University, 2009, 78-81 p.Conference paper (Other academic)
In this study we investigate utterance-final intonation in two dialects of Kammu, one tonal and one non-tonal. While the general patterns of utterance-final intonation are similar between the dialects, we do find clear evidence that the lexical tones of the tonal dialect restrict the pitch range and the realization of focus. Speaker engagement can have a strong effect on the utterance-final accent in both dialects.
