Prosodic Typology II

Sameer ud Dowla Khan

Oxford University Press

The current model of Bangladeshi Standard Bengali prosody proposes three basic pitch accents and three hierarchically-structured prosodic units—the Accentual Phrase, the Intermediate Phrase, and the Intonation Phrase—each of which bears a boundary tone. Focused words are marked by a special tone whose realization depends on focus type and surrounding tones.
