A Contrastive Study of Prosody and Lexical Stress Placement in Singapore English and British English.
Ling, Low Ee; Grabe, Esther
Language and Speech, v42 n1 p39-56 Jan-Mar 1999
Tests experimentally whether stress placement in polysyllabic words differs in Singapore English (SE) and British English (BE), or whether acoustic correlates of stress differ in the two English varieties. Results suggest word-final stress in SE is not result of lexical stress placement, but combination of lengthening of final-syllable words in the nuclear, phrase final position combined with lack of de-prominencing of unstressed syllables in FO.
