dc.description.abstractThis paper presents the results of a preliminary investigation of the phonetics of tone in Saramaccan, an Atlantic creole spoken in Surinam. Saramaccan has traditionally been described as exhibiting a lexical contrast between high tones and low tones, as well as allowing tone bearing units (TBU’s) to be lexically unspecified for tone, but surfacing with either high or low tone, depending on the phonological environment where they appear (Voorhoeve 1961, Rountree 1972).en_US
