Experimental Investigation of End-of-utterance Perception by Final Lowering in Spontaneous Japanese
Yuishi Ishimoto and Mika Enomoto
Oriental COCOSDA 2016   205-209   Oct 2016   [Refereed]
It is considered that final lowering, which is a phenomenon that the fundamental frequencies (F0s) fall significantly in sentence final position, marks the end of an utterance in Japanese. However, it is not clear whether the hearer utilizes final...
