  • An acoustic description and tonological analysis are presented for the lexical tone sandhi in a subset of tonal combinations in the Southern Wu dialect of Wenzhou. Realisation of first syllable tones is shown to involve a change to a high rising tone, with and without a depressor, conditioned by the tonological complexity of the tone on the second syllable. Changes to both first and second syllable tones are shown to be part of a wider set of changes governing tonal realisation in Wenzhou sandh
