This project put forth a unified research framework for both SFPs and sentence-final intonation, i.e., to link up a syntactic analysis and prosodic feature identification. To limit the domain of research into a more manageable size, the scope of our study is restricted to the SFPs in Cantonese interrogatives, which will be put into a pool as the "core" data of this project. Both the controlled phonetic experiment and the natural speech collection will be conducted in this research project to investigate the prosodic features of SFPs and the interactions between SFPs and sentence-final intonation.
