  • In this paper we investigate acoustic and articulatory anchors for F0 targets corresponding to prenuclear and nuclear accent peaks in German, both across two different articulation rates (normal and fast) and across two different syllable structures (CV: and CVC). For the articulatory measurements we used Electromagnetic Midsagittal Articulography (EMMA). Whereas in Dutch the H peak of a rising prenuclear accent has been shown to occur at the edge of the accented syllable [1], in German the… CONTINUE READING
