Expressing ‘confirmation’ in Swedish: the interplay of word and utterance prosody

Ambrazaitis, Gilbert LU (2007) In Proceedings of the 16th International Congress of Phonetic Sciences p.1093-1096
Abstract
An exploratory study on the prosodic signaling of ‘confirmation’ in Swedish is presented. Pairs of subjects

read short dialogs, constructed around selected target words, in a conversational style. A falling utterance intonation was found on the target word, and the signaling of word prosody (lexical pitch accent) appeared to be, to a certain degree, optional.
