Stability of tonal alignment: the case of Greek prenuclear accents
Abstract Greek prenuclear accents show a sharp rise that starts near the onset of the accented syllable and peaks on the following unaccented syllable (if there is one). We have presented elsewhereExpand
On the phonetics and phonology of "segmental anchoring" of F0: evidence from German
We measured the alignment of F0 minima and maxima with segmental landmarks, in prenuclear rising accents in Northern and Southern German. Expand
Constant "segmental anchoring" of F0 movements under changes in speech rate.
This study develops the notion of the "segmental anchoring" of F0 movements, specifically, the finding that both the beginning and the end of a rising pitch accent are anchored to specific points inExpand
The structure of intonational meaning
The Structure of Intonational Meaning: Evidence from English
Now welcome, the most inspiring book today from a very professional writer in the world, the structure of intonational meaning evidence from english. This is the book that many people in the worldExpand
Phonological conditioning of peak alignment in rising pitch accents in Dutch.
This paper deals with the factors that influence the alignment of F0 movements with phonetic segments. It reports two experiments on the alignment of rising prenuclear pitch accents in Dutch. InExpand
Phonological Features of Intonational Peaks
sequence' approaches of Bruce & Gi.rding 1978 and Pierrehumbert 1980. As in those works, contours are seen as sequences of pitch accents composed of high and low tones. Unlike those works, this modelExpand
The perception of intonational emphasis: continuous or categorical?
Abstract A series of experiments was carried out to test the idea that there is a categorical difference between “normal” and “emphatic” accent peaks in English, rather than a continuum of graduallyExpand
Declination ‘‘reset’’ and the hierarchical organization of utterances
Sequences of accented fundamental frequency (F0) peaks (‘‘toplines’’) were measured for sentences of the form A and B but C and A but B and C, where A, B, and C are separate main clauses with threeExpand
On the place of phrase accents in intonational phonology
We assume a distinction between pitch accents and boundary tones in the theory of intonation. Expand
