Discreteness and Gradience in Intonational Contrasts.
Gussenhoven, Carlos
Language and Speech, v42 n2-3 p283-305 Apr-Sep 1999
Three experimental techniques that can be used to investigate the gradient of discrete nature of intonational differences, the semantic task, the imitation task, and the pitch range task are discussed and evaluated. It is pointed out that categorical perception is a sufficient but not a necessary, property of phonological discreteness. (Author/VWL)
