Towards a pan-Mandarin system for prosodic transcription

By Shu-hui Peng, Marjorie K. M. Chan, Chiu-yu Tseng, Tsan Huang, Ok Joo Lee and Mary Beckman


This chapter describes the initial stages of development of a Pan-Mandarin ToBI system. We will review the salient prosodic characteristics of Mandarin, with particular attention to the range of variability within a common structural core, and then propose an initial codification of conventions for marking prosodic structure in two standard varieties and one regional variety of the language
