Title:Rethinking Awngi Tone
Abstract:The Awngi language has previously been described as having three contrastive tone levels: high, mid and low, with an additional falling tone. This paper will attempt to show that there are really only two distinctive tone levels, high and low, the falling tone being a combination of high and low on one syllable. Finally it will be investigated whether Awngi is really a tone language or a pitch-accent language.
