Base Transparency in Suprasegmental Changes: Ongoing Changes in Japanese and English.
Hattori, Noriko
Language Variation and Change, v10 n2 p85-96 1998
By examining data on historical changes in pitch accent plus data from present-day speech analysis, the article concludes that suprasegmental changes are in progress in both Japanese and English languages. Although English and Japanese use different phonetic resources to implement accentuation, vacillation in their respective suprasegmental features indicates the existence of principles of change.
