dc.description.abstractBased on the qualitative analysis of the F0 contours of wide range of utterances (broad focus declaratives, broad focus questions, narrow focus declaratives, narrow focus questions, vocative chant, and prompting intonation) utterred by nine native speakers, an autosegmental/metrical analysis of Standard Selbo-Croatian intonation is proposed. This analysis argues for sparse specification of tones, contra Inkelas and Zee (1988), and two levels of prosodic phrasing: the phonological word and the intonational phrase. The phonological word is defined in terms of a lexical pitch accent and an initial word boundary tone, whereas the intonational phrase is a domain defined by pitch range manipulations (expansion, compression, reset, downstep) and final intonational phrase boundary tones.en_US
