アクセント教育における最初の授業 [in Japanese] The Study of the First Lesson in Accent Teaching [in Japanese]
Access this Article
In general, accent teaching materials incorporate activities such as answering the drop of 4-beat nouns or the difference of accent in 2-beat words (e.g. "ame" (HL-LH)) during the beginning lessons. These types of activities are sometimes too difficult for learners, and also may give learners wrong impression that they have to memorize the accent of every single word. In this presentation, the author introduces accent teaching activity which utilizes Japanese surnames as a first lesson. After listening to the stimulation sounds, learners answered whether the accent dropped or not, and then two accent types of (0) and (-2) were introduced to them. Following the lesson, learners were asked to answer the accent type of other surnames. It was indicated that learners improved their ability to guess and make corrections in the accent types.
