The marked status of Accent 2 in Central Swedish

Roll, Mikael LU ; Söderström, Pelle LU and Horne, Merle LU orcid (2011) ICPhS XVIII p.1710-1713
Abstract
Based on results from psycholinguistic and neuro- linguistic research on the perception of word ac- cents in Central Swedish, we argue that Accent 2 could be seen as “marked,” as opposed to the un- marked Accent 1. The markedness of Accent 2 is assumed to be both phonetic, due to its relatively more complex high tone, and cognitive, due to the fact that the Accent 2 tone activates more word forms and thus increases processing load.
