For my PhD project, I am working on the prosody of Japanese. Specifically, I am trying to revisit this topic from a functional point of view without resorting to any abstract notions commonly adopted in the research literature to date. I have looked at focus prosody, and have compared the F0 realisation of focus across different word positions. Taking that as a starting point, I will revisit the nature of pitch accent of Japanese next. I wish to find out the underlying target of each type of accent (or non-accent, for that matter) by looking at their behaviour in different syllable structures and focus configurations.
