Student or Learner
I'm writing a work on phonetics right now and have to count the tones in non-final syntagms. So, I have some questions.
For example, the following sentence is marked like this: Rosemary Fell | was not exactly beautiful, so the non-final syntagms are 1) "Rosemary Fell" and 2) "was not exactly beautiful". Is this true? Are they both non-final or just the first is non-final and the second - final?
Acc. to the speaker, "Fell" takes a level tone and the words "not" and "exactly" have two scandents above them. So, my next question is: are scandents - tones? If not, how to identify them in my work?
Thanks in advance.
