In addition to making choices in the tone system, a speaker must also select relative pitch or key for each tone unit. ” Three keys are postulated by Brazil — high, mid, and low — with the middle one generally left unmarked. Selection of high or low key involves raising or lowering the pitch of the whole tone group relative to a pitch that can be established as the norm for the speaker concerned. With regard to key, speakers make a potentially meaningful choice to pitch each successive tone group at, above, or below the level which for them can be regarded as the baseline or norm.

He analyzed contours as sequences of four pitch height variants or pitch phonemes. , their signiWcance is determined by their height relative to each another.
