Variability of F0 peak alignment in moroccan Arabic accentual focus

Mohamed Yeou

The present paper examines how phonetic duration due to syllable structure contributes to the alignment of F0 peaks in Moroccan Arabic. The F0 peak occurs within but near the end of the accented syllable if the vowel is phonetically long due its occurrence in a final CVC. If the accented vowel is phonetically short as in a penultimate CV, the F0 peak is aligned after the accented syllable.
