Abstract:

The study employs an autosegmental-metrical model of intonation to propose
an intonational grammar of Swabian and Upper Saxon German, respectively.
The analysis is guided by the assumption that each dialect exhibits a
specific distinct intonation. The phonological analysis is comparative in
nature: the implementation of accents is compared between the dialects in
terms of tonal alignment and excursions. In fact, the phonetic data present
evidence for the phonological analysis in that the individual tonal
categories differ significantly from each other. In addition, a functional
analysis of the intonation contours provides further evidence for the
phonological analysis. Based on the assumption that nuclear contours convey
intonational meaning, these meanings are analysed and compared. A certain
meaning can be attributed to intonation contours that differ phonologically
between the two dialects. However, the general shape of contours and its
association with meaning has been proved to be identical in the two
dialects and compared to a similar analysis of intonational meaning of
British English. This comprehensive study of dialect intonation contributes
to improve our understanding of intonational phonology.
