University of Pennsylvania Working Papers in Linguistics

Abstract

In this paper, I examine the text-setting in 43 Japanese Children’s songs, called “warabe uta”. By examining the text-tune alignment and the text-meter alignment, I show that accented positions and accentual tonal transitions are more important than the other positions and other tonal transitions in the text-setting in Japanese songs.
