Towards a phonological model of Uyghur intonation

Travis Major, Connor Mayer


In this paper we present a preliminary intonational model for Uyghur (Turkic: China). We use acoustic measurements to support the claim that Uyghur is a stress language that only uses edge-marking intonation. Although this is not unattested in the literature, to our knowledge this is the first AM model of such a language.
