Advanced

Aspects of North Swedish intonational phonology.

Bruce, Gösta LU (2003) In Proceedings from Fonetik 2003 ; Phonum 9 9. p.17-20
Abstract
The present contribution discusses features of North Swedish intonational

phonology. One characteristic feature is final element stress in compounds

occurring particularly in dialects of North Botnia. The idea proposed here is

that the accentual pattern (HL) of a compound has a different alignment in

these dialects compared to East Standard Swedish. Another characteristic

feature is related to a specific pattern of phrase intonation. This phrasal

pattern, also represented as HL, has a distinct difference in timing as well

compared to East Swedish. It seems to have a wider geographical

distribution among North Swedish dialects than final element stress.
