Intonation of Slovene was studied in few works [1, 5, 7, 8] and rarely in the acoustic domain. This paper proposes some first results issued from corpus-based analysis of Slovene intonation. It is shown that some aspects of Slovene prosody, like realization of lexical stress, were bad known. Some first indices of the existence of intonation prototypes [9] are given in a top-down global approach.
