Prosodic Typology II

Oxford University Press

Jamaican Creole has a stress-accent system, unlike Creoles like Saramaccan or Papiamentu. Lexical prominence is realized by stress with no lexically specified F0. Postlexical pitch accents are monotonal or bitonal and are associated with syllables with primary stress. Boundary tones mark higher level prosodic constituents associated with phrases edges.

Keywords:   prosody, Jamaican Creole, intonation, stress, tone
