Similarly, if rising accents were compressed a more rapid rising in oxytones than in paroxytones or proparoxytones would be expected.
Since each sentence consisted of two prenuclear accents, 360 accents were analysed, namely 120 oxytones, 120 paroxytones and 120 proparoxytones.
Thus, F0 peaks are more displaced in paroxytones than in oxytones and even more displaced in proparoxytones than in paroxytones.
However, given the clear effects of the number of postaccentual syllables on the location of H and the greater F0 displacement in proparoxytones than in the other stress conditions, the alignment of H in relation to the offset of the postaccentual syllable was analysed so as to find out the exact anchoring of the F0 peak in this language.
The clear location of the F0 peak after the postaccentual syllable in Spanish proparoxytones strengthens the evident effects of the number of postaccentual syllables within the word and suggests the possible presence of a loosely aligned H word-edge tone, that is, a word boundary tone to cue word boundaries although its location is not strictly fixed at the end of the word.
Since in English the H is clearly aligned within the accented syllable, the H distance to the word boundary is greater in paroxytones than in oxytones and even greater in proparoxytones than in paroxytones, as a result of the different number of postaccentual syllables within the word.
Table 1 displays the mean values and standard deviations for the onvalley distance and the on-end distance in oxytones, paroxytones and proparoxytones, both in Catalan and in English.
Figures 4 and 5 plot the correlations between the on-end and the on-valley distances for nuclear oxytones, paroxytones and proparoxytones, both in subject and in verb positions for Catalan and English.
The "patterns-in-the-lexicon" model predicts more proparoxytones in group 1 (open penult), which is borne out (38.
