Abstract

熊本方言は語のアクセントの型に意味を弁別する機能がなく,無アクセント方言だといわれている.しかし,音声言語であれば発話の切れ目を示す機能はあるはずで,引用を示す助詞「-て」を含む節において,韻律がどのように現れるかを調査した.イントネーション単位がテ節と一致しているとき,基本的には「て」の直前で音調の下降が見られること,テ節がより大きなイントネーション単位の一部となるとき,その下降は見られなくなること,プロミネンスがおかれた場合,おかれた要素の音調にピークが現われ,他の要素の音調は低くおさえられることなどがわかった.

Kumamoto dialect is a no-accent dialect. The accent patterns of the dialect don't work as the distinctive features of the meanings. The prosodic features of any language have the function with which you can divide an utterance into sentence fragments, and it is true of Kumamoto dialect, too. I researched about the prosodic features of the clauses with quotative "-te" in Kumamoto dialect. The following points among others are examined to be clarified : i) When the te -clause makes an intonation unit, there basically is a tone falling immediately before the "-te." ii) When the te-clause is a part of a bigger intonation unit, there is no tone falling before the "-te." iii) When there is a prominence upon an element in an utterance, the tonal peak appears upon the element and the tones of the other elements are depressed low.
