Q: have(got)to

I am now interested in the semi-modals ''have to'' and ''have got to'' in

I think sentence (2) is more emphatic and more emotional than (1). Am
I right ? If there are any other differences between them, tell them
to me.

(1) You have to be kidding.
(2) You've got to be kidding.
Could you e-mail me directly?
With thanks in advance and best wishes,
Kenji Kashino

Perceptual test

Does anyone of you have any idea about :

1. the segmental / suprasegmental cues used by arabic 'hearers' to
recognize the dialectal origine of an arabic speaker ?

2. the way I could set up a perceptual test in order to analyse the
role played by intonation for the recognition of arabic dialects. (I
intend to use low-filtered sentences produced by Arabic speakers from
different countries to see if any information is present on the F0).

Many thanks and best regards,
