Intonation in Spanish Classroom-style Didactic Speech

Rajiv Rao
2011 Journal of Language Teaching and Research  
Work on intonation, especially related to Spanish, has not focused extensively on second language acquisition in general.  ...  All of these characteristics corroborate and expand upon previous literature on narrow focus and emphatic speech styles in Spanish.  ...  In nuclear sentence position, F0 peaks often align with the stressed syllable due to the presence of an upcoming phrase boundary that blocks displacement.  ...

The intonational phonology of Peninsular Spanish and European Portuguese [chapter]

Meghan E. Armstrong, Marisa Cruz
2014 Portuguese-Spanish Interfaces  
We find a considerable amount of overlap in terms of phonetic implementations of the tonal categories, showing, at times, labeling differences.  ...  Here we compare the intonational systems of Peninsular Spanish (PS) and European Portuguese (EP), considering previous research on prosodic hierarchy, phrasing and tonal density.  ...  tonic syllable followed by a displaced F0 peak occurring in a post-tonic syllable (L+>H*).  ...

The modelling of prenuclear accents in Central Catalan declaratives

Eva Estebas-Vilaplana
2003 Catalan Journal of Linguistics  
The results show that the F0 peak is consistently anchored at the end of the word no matter the number of post-accented syllables.  ...  Words with different stress distributions (oxytones, paroxytones and proparoxytones) are analysed to observe whether the presence of a word boundary has an effect on the location of the F0 peak.  ...  He shows that in this language word boundaries do not affect the alignment of the F0 peak since in oxytones the F0 maximum is always located on the post-stressed syllable.  ...
