"Times New Roman"" lang="EN-GB">ABBREVIATIONS AND TONE MARKING CONVENTION






mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman"" lang="EN-GB"> The work adopted Welmer’s tone marking

convention which states that only the first of the sequence of syllables on the

same pitch level is marked leaving the subsequent ones unmarked until a

contrasting pitch is reached and get marked. Secondly, two consecutive acute

marks are to be interpreted as high followed by down step in the same word or

across word.(Welmer, 1973).
