A new proposal of laryngeal features for the tonal system of Vietnamese

Masaaki Shimizu, Masatake Dantsuji

We have examined a tonal system of modern Hanoi dialect of Vietnamese. This has been described for a long time as a pitch contour prominent system with secondary phonatory variations. The present study aims to propose certain laryngeal features, [tense] and [glottal constriction], in addition to the former prosodic feature, [high], to cover the overall distinction within the system. Some acoustical and laryngographical analyses were made in order to present phonetic evidence for our proposal.
