Prosodic Typology

Carlos Gussenhoven

Oxford University Press

This chapter describes a system for the transcription of Dutch intonation, based on the autosegmental description by Gussenhoven. It describes intonational Phrase (IP) boundaries, Utterance boundaries, IP-final, and IP_initial tones, plus pitch accents, following the Pierrehumbert model. It uses three initial boundary tones, %L, %H, and %HL; three final boundary conditions, L%, H%, and % (no tone); five pitch accents H*, L*, H*L, L*H, and H*!H; plus two modifications, Delay (L*-prefix) and downstep (!H). The system has a larger coverage than the IPO grammar, is more transparent than the earlier autosegmental description, while also including the distinction between low rise (L*H H%) and high rise (H*H%), absent from the earlier description.

Keywords:   stress shift, initial boundary tone, optional boundary tone, bitonal boundary tone, downstep, delay, tone modification, high rise, low rise, tonal prefix
