Speech Prosody 2006
The present study investigates whether - as in several welldocumented languages -, prosody plays a role in the signaling of discourse segmentation in Suyá, an Amazonian language of the Jê group. Inspired by the literature, the following prosodic variables were selected for analysis: pause, pitch reset and boundary tones.
