  • Disyllabic lexical tone sandhi for the Wu (Chinese) variety of Longquan 龙泉 is described for one male speaker. The tone sandhi des crib d is typologically more similar to that of Northern Min varieties than Wu varieties . It is argued that the retention of creaky tonation on the second syllable is a marker of stress – a phonological phenomenon hitherto not yet described for Chinese .
