This paper explores the role of secondary association of tones in the analysis of Castilian Spanish intonation patterns. It is argued that the secondary association of pitch accent tones can account for a three-way contrast in bitonal rising pitch accents, and that the secondary association of edge tones can account for two pitch range effects - post-focal pitch range reduction and final lowering.
