Abstract:The findings for the study on Vaudois spontaneous speech may account for this alignment difference. An analysis of the tonal alignment of each point in the major phrase-final LHL pattern helped to determine their phonological status as perhaps a bitonal pitch accent (LH*) followed by a boundary tone (L%). An optional H phrase tone was found to sometimes occur as well. The possible insertion of these boundary tones may create the need to align LH* earlier in Vaudois French.
