Experiments on the Meaning of Four Types of Single Accent Intonation Patterns in Dutch.
Caspers, Johanneke
Language and Speech, v43 n2 p127-61 Apr-Jun 2000
Describes an experimental attempt to verify meaning hypotheses for four Dutch single-accent pitch patterns as postulated in the linguistic literature. Results show a distinct effect of orientation on appropriateness of two of the investigated pitch accent types; the other two pitch accent types are associated with predicted context types well above chance, indicating viability of at least two of the linguistic proposals.
