Pitch Phonemes
We shall now examine the phonemes of
pitch, a third category of supra-segmental phonemes.
Like phonemes of stress, the phonemes
of pitch are relative values.
Four Contrasting Levels of Pitch
We recognize four contrasting levels of
low/ 1/
mid/ 2/ represents normal pitch
high /3/
extra high/ 4/ (for special emphasis)
Placement of Numbers
In any utterance, the pitch phonemes
are placed immediately in front of thesyllables which they mark,except in the
case of the last syllable which has
numbers on both sides.
+ 3
1 /
Only mark points at which contrastoccurs.
