LCEAL: Sun-Ah Jun (UCLA) — Prosodic Phrasing and word prominence in Yanbian Korean

2 October 2023 09:15 to 11:00 Seminar

Speaker: Sun-Ah Jun (UCLA)

Title: Prosodic Phrasing and word prominence in Yanbian Korean


It is well-known that prosodic phrasing can mark major syntactic groupings and prominence relationship among words (e.g., Shattuck-Hufnagel & Turk 1996; Beckman 1996; Jun 2005a, 2014a). In this talk, I will show how prosodic phrasing, defined by intonation, reflects the morpho-syntactic structure of an utterance and the prominence relationship among words in Yanbian Korean, a lexical pitch accent dialect of Hamgyung Korean spoken in Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture, located in Northeast China (Jun & Jiang 2019). I will then discuss how Yanbian Korean differs from Seoul Korean and other languages in ways to mark word prominence, based on the model of prosodic typology proposed in Jun (2005b, 2014b).
