Abstract In Green Mong, a subset of tones is characterized by phonation type in addition to pitch height, pitch contour and duration, which characterize the remaining tones of the language. This study examines perceptual and acoustic data to address the question of what makes tones clear when tonal identity is determined by this complex of acoustic cues. Native listeners were asked to categorize three tones which have similar falling contours, but which are differentiated by phonation type… CONTINUE READING

Key Quantitative Results

  • Average correct identification rates for these listeners ranged from 79% to 92% on words produced by the three female speakers, and from 68% to 90% on words produced by the three male speakers.
