Other AbstractThrough exploring a corpus of 30 natural narrative discourses, identifying the focus and accent in the corpus, and conducting statistical analysis, the present study aimed to investigate the corresponding relationship between focus and accent. It was found that in read aloud discourses, most foci were accented. However, there were also differences between the prominence of the accents, only about half of the foci were perceived as main accent~ About 88% of the sentence-final information loci were accented. The main patterns of accent distribution in broad focus were: in parallel phrase, the main pattern was that the degree of stress was equal between the two words; in Subject-predicate phrase, verb + object phrase, and verb-complement phrase, the main pattern was that the degree of stress of the latter word was higher than the former ; in attribute-head phrase and adverb-head phrase the main pattern was that the degree of stress of the former word was higher than the latter o These findings suggest that in Mandarin, accent serves as an important device to convey focus rather than a compensation of syntax device. Moreover, the distribution patterns of accent in broad focus are basically consistent with the distribution patterns of normal accent.
