Unit 1



© John Maidment, 2012

In this unit you will be given the opportunity to listen to single syllable utterances with one of just  three nuclear tones:

  1. High Fall
  2. Low Rise
  3. Fall-rise

Click on the words below to hear the speech.  When you think you have heard enough and can recognise these three tones, click the CONTINUE link to the left.  This will take you to a page where you can test your ability to distinguish these tones.
