Pitch contours in Russian yes/no questions by Finns
Ullakonoja, Riikka. 2010. Pitch contours in Russian yes/no questions by Finns. In: Hasegawa-Johnson, Mark & Bradlow, Ann & Cole, Jennifer & Livescu, Karen & Pierrehumbert, Janet & Shih, Chilin (eds.) Proceedings of the Speech Prosody 2010 Conference, Chicago.
The aim of this paper is to determine the pitch contours Finns use when uttering yes/no questions in Russian. In addition, the pitch contours will be compared to native speech as well as subjected to native speaker evaluation. So far, there has been very little research on the prosody of Russian as a second language. L1 Finnish students are an interesting group to study because intonation in Finnish is not distinctive whereas in Russian it is.
