Abstract
This paper investigates the acoustic properties of lexical pitch accent contrasts produced by native and non-native dialect speakers in cross-dialect of Korean. Specifically, it focuses on examining whether the f0 pitch contour in the prosody production of adults and children has a dialect-specific effect. The current experiment examines the acoustic characteristics of pitch accent minimal pairs produced by adult speakers of these two dialects, and those of disyllabic words by child and adult speakers. The results show evidence for lexical categories of pitch accent in native dialect speakers (i.e., North Kyungsang), but not in non-native dialect speakers (i.e., South Cholla). Specifically, all the measurement (i.e., peak f0, f0 range, turning point of f0, and the difference of the f0 values at the mid point of the first and second vowels) showed a difference between the two dialect speakers. Additionally, for the North Kyungsang adult speakers, the turning point of f0 was a better measure for detecting the lexical pitch accent categories. The results of the adult speakers from the two dialect groups were supported by the f0 difference of the first and second vowels produced by the North Kyungsang and South Cholla child speakers.
