Karlsson, Anastasia LU ; Svantesson, Jan-Olof LU and House, David LU (2014) Fonetik 2014 In Proceedings from FONETIK 2014 Stockholm, June 9-11, 2014 (Perilus 24) p.71-76
Abstract
The main function of sentence intonation in Kammu is to mark prosodic boundaries. There is no additional tonal marking of focus. It is of particular in- terest that the underlying intonation system is the same for both tonal (Northern Kammu) and non-tonal (Eastern Kammu) dialects. Prosodic boundaries in Kammu have three func- tions: they mark prosodic phrases, focus and speaker engagement. In this study we show that relationships between boundaries in terms of upstepping or its absence interact with information and discourse structure. This relationship has the same pattern in both tonal and non-tonal Kammu.
