Word accent gestures in West Swedish

Segerup, My LU (2003) In Proceedings from Fonetik 2003 ; Phonum 9 9. p.25-28
Abstract
The generally accepted knowledge of the word accent manifestations in

West Swedish (prototype Gothenburg) predicts a specific pattern of the word

accent gestures common to a great variety of dialects within Götaland. The

generally accepted picture of the word accent distinction is that it is clearly

manifested in the different pitch contours. The main purpose of the present

study was to verify this and gain further insight into how the distinction is

manifested in West Swedish. Contrary to our predictions, the nine different

dialects examined showed no clear word accent distinction concerning the

timing and shape of the pitch contours.
