Abstract
This study, addressing the analysis of pitch patterns in Estonian Swedish compounds, enables us to draw some preliminary conclusions about the characteristics of accentuation in this little studied regional variety of Swedish. The analysis in the first part of the paper was inspired by the classification of Edvin Lagman (1979) who on the basis of auditory analysis distinguished between four accent types for Estonian Swedish compounds. Using the same materials, the present acoustic study broadly confirms his classification. In the second part of the paper, a small set of Estonian Swedish compound contours is compared to those of other regional va- rieties of Swedish. The results show that the contours of Estonian Swedish resemble most those... (More)
