Linguistic Field: Language Documentation; Phonology
Subject Language: Kalami
Subject Language Family: Indo-Aryan Northwestern Zone
Abstract: In an earlier paper evidence was presented to show that Kalam Kohistani, a Dardic language of the North-West Frontier Province of Pakistan, has five contrastive patterns of lexical pitch (Baart 1995). The present paper studies how these five lexical tones (or rather 'melodies') may synchronically change their shapes through interaction with sentence intonation, through morphological process, and through interaction with the melodies of neighbouring words and morphemes. Attention is also devoted to interactions of tone and segmental structure.
