Abstract

This paper is concerned with intonation in German and whether there is a phonological distinction between two types of early peaks H+L* and H+!H*. Speech perception and production data are presented to shed light on this issue. The results show little evidence for a phonological distinction between these categories. The results are interpreted in terms of the relationship between downstep and early peak placement in German.
