Perception of South Swedish Word Accents

Ambrazaitis, Gilbert LU and Bruce, Gösta LU (2006) Fonetik 2006 In Working Papers in General Linguistics and Phonetics 52. p.5-8
Abstract
A perceptual experiment concerning South Swedish word accents (accent I, accent II) is described. By means of editing and resynthesis techniques the F0 pattern of a test word in a phrase context has been systematically manipulated: initial rise (glide vs. jump) and final concatenation (6 timing degrees of the accentual fall). The results indicate that both a gliding rise and a late fall seem necessary for the perception of accent II, while there appear to be no such specific, necessary cues for the perception of accent I.
