Languages differ in these respects, even when they are closely related: Adult speakers of Swiss German and Southern German differ in frequency of pitch accent choice (more L*+H in Swiss German) and the alignment of tonal targets (later in Swiss German). We investigate the choice and realization of rising pitch accents (L+H*, L*+H) by 2-to-3- year-old children from these languages (varieties spoken in the Cantone of Zurich and Baden-Wuerttemberg). We annotated productions from a semi-spontaneous naming task and compared pitch accent choice and alignment in disyllabic trochaic nouns. Results showed more L*+H in Swiss German compared to Southern German children, mirroring the adult pattern. The alignment of the starred tone (e.g., L* in L*+H) was influenced by the duration of the accented syllable (the longer, the later), but this pattern was modulated by pitch accent type and language: stronger effects of duration in Southern German L+H* and weaker effects in both Swiss German accents. We discuss the results in terms of the phonological system of the two languages.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/59391/1/Einfeldt_2-1ljx09yoirkho1.pdf"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/59391/1/Einfeldt_2-1ljx09yoirkho1.pdf"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/45"/> <dcterms:issued>2021</dcterms:issued> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
