“Effects of Syntactic Constituency on Phonology and Phonetics of Tone” Digital Archive (ECPPT)

This archive is a collection of text, audio, and plots of data from four typologically diverse languages: Basque, Irish, Luganda and Xitsonga. The dataset is based on sentences collected as part of a National Science Foundation project from 2012 to 2016. This project investigated the question of just how the syntactic structure of a sentence can affect its pronunciation
