The intonational phonology of Mongolian

Karlsson, Anastasia LU (2014) In Prosodic typology II : the phonology of intonation and phrasing p.187-215
Abstract
This chapter describes tonal features of Halh Mongolian. Mongolian belongs to edge-prominence languages: Halh speakers either use available boundary tones or insert a tonal boundary for different pragmatic meanings. Most tonal variation occurs utterance finally, while phrasing and focusing are signaled phrase initially at the left edge of prosodic units.
