Who's Next? The Melodic Marking of Question vs. Continuation in Dutch.
Caspers, Johanneke
Language and Speech, v41 n3-4 p375-98 Jul-Dec 1998
Investigated functional differences between the accent-lending rise followed by sustained level pitch (10) and combined accent-lending rise and final rise (12) in Dutch. Thirty individuals were presented with short utterances bearing either a 10 or 12 contour. Results indicated that 10 is not readily interpreted as a question, so 10 may help signal turn-taking in Dutch. (SM)
