Prosodic Typology II

Carlos Gussenhoven

Oxford University Press

The tonal dialect of Helden (Limburgish) has a low rise interrogative by the side of a high rise interrogative, but the dialect of Venlo employs this distinction to signal different lexical tones. To signal the lexical tone distinction, Helden’s rising interrogative contours have a contrastive pitch dip in the post-focal stretch. With four intonations contours, these two dialects, spoken in locations some 15 km apart on the north-western edge of the Franconian tonal area, have the largest number of intonation contours reported to date for these tonal dialects.

Keywords:   interrogative intonation, lexical tone, Franconian, Limburgish, Limburgian
