Specifically, types of pitch accents and edge tones and their combinations in neutral declaratives and questions, and in utterances containing narrow focus are addressed. Two pitch accent types (H∗ and L∗ ) and two edge tones (H- and L-) are identified, for which evidence has not been found in previous research. Moreover, the paper shows for declaratives, that along with downstep, Icelandic has upstep across Intonational Phrases. Upstep applies to a series of pitch peaks. It may occur in neutral declaratives and in utterances with final narrow focus. Overall, the results of this study provide a substantial addition to our knowledge of Icelandic intonational phonology.</dcterms:abstract> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>First publ. in: Nordic Journal of Linguistics 32 (2009), 1, p. 5–34</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dc:contributor>Dehé, Nicole</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Dehé, Nicole</dc:creator> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:issued>2009</dcterms:issued> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
