Minor syllable tones in Kammu

Svantesson, Jan-Olof LU and Karlsson, Anastasia LU (2004) In Proceedings, International symposium on tonal aspects of languages (TAL2004) p.177-180
Abstract
The existence of sesquisyllabic words consisting of one 'minor' and one 'major' syllable is often mentioned as a characteristic property of the Mon-Khmer language group, but the existence of contrastive tones on minor syllables has been described only for (Northern) Kammu. In this article we investigate the acoustic properties of the the minor syllable tones, and also give a brief overview of their morphology and their historical development.
