Comparison of the intonation of two question types in Estonian

Asu, Eva Liina (2001) In Working Papers, Lund University, Dept. of Linguistics 49.
Abstract
The present paper compares the intonation of two question types in Estonian: tag questions (või-questions) and morphosyntactically unmarked questions. Measurements of accent peaks in controlled data revealed a significant difference in the nuclear pitch accent between the two types. This finding is interpreted with reference to work on questions in other languages.
