Tones that represent continuative intonation in Acadian French

Wladyslaw Cichocki


Tonal variation related to continuations at both accentual phrase (AP) and intonation phrase (IP) levels was studied. Acadian French, a variety spoken in Canada's Atlantic region that differs in significant ways from varieties such as Parisian French, was also discussed. The results suggest that continuative intonation in Acadian French is realized by at least six types of surface tones, and these appear at both AP and IP levels.
