Second. the Korean subjects exhibit a distinct tonal pattern for phrases similar to the Low-High-Low-High tone sequence of Korean ``accentual phrase.~: This can be considered to be a transfer effect. Otherwise it can be interpreted as speaker``s intention of asking for listener``s approval or attention, or signaling that their speech will go on. Based on these generalizations, this study claims that at the level of intonation Korean speakers clearly employ systematic and classifiable patterns that are distinct from those of native speakers.
