Phonetic markedness, turning points, and anticipatory attention

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding

Abstract

Phonetic markedness regarding linguistically relevant tonal patterns (Accent 2, boundary tones) in Central Swedish is discussed. Both tonal markedness and F0 turning points are assumed to be important cues for anticipatory attention to grammatical structure during speech processing. Empirical evidence from neuro- linguistic and psycholinguistic experiments for the assumed relation between anticipatory attention and marked tonal patterns’ association with Swedish word and clause structures is presented.
