On final rises and fall-rises in German and Swedish

Ambrazaitis, Gilbert LU (2008) FONETIK 2008 In Proceedings FONETIK 2008 p.81-84
Abstract
This study explores the intonational signalling of a ‘request address’ in German and Swedish. Data from 16 speakers (9 Germans, 7 Swedes) were elicited under controlled conditions, and intonation contours produced on the test phrase “Wallander?” were classified according to

their phrase-final pattern. Both ‘rises’ and ‘fall-rises’ were produced frequently by both Germans and Swedes, which is in line with Ohala’s frequency code, but challenging for the Lund model of Swedish intonation.
