The need for foreign students to pronounce naturally is of significant importance. In general, classes in which students learn by listening, speaking, reading, and writing, there is little room to focus on teaching natural pronunciation. We have been developing teaching material - the "Kotoba sheet" that can be used while teaching vocabulary to address this problem. The "Kotoba sheet" enables one to effectively teach pronunciation in a short time. In response to our questionnaire, most teachers affirmed the sheet's effectiveness; however, some expressed difficulties in teaching pronunciation. Thus, this prompted the development of a teachers' manual for the "Kotoba sheet." This study gives an overview of the development of the teachers' manual for the "Kotoba sheet."

The dialect of the city of Kumamoto and its surrounding area is said to lack lexical accent systems. This research investigated tonal phrases in spoken discourses of young Kumamoto dialect speakers. A tonal phrase is defined as a minimal tonal unit comprising a rise and fall in pitch. Results of the acoustic analysis revealed that tonal phrases in our data could be classified into eight basic types including those that had not been identified in previous research. In addition, it was shown that in about half of the cases, a tonal phrase corresponds with a minimal syntactic phrase (comprising a content word followed by zero or more functional words), and when a syntactic phrase semantically modifies the following phrase, they mostly form a tonal phrase.

九州北西部及び中部方言における韻律単位の実態と変化のメカニズムを明らかにするために,長崎県佐世保市を中心に,生成調査を行った。その結果,高齢層には,音調句末に特殊拍があると下降位置が変わりやすい傾向が見られたが,中年層にはその傾向は見られなかった。佐世保市方言においては,韻律単位が音節から拍へ変化している可能性が示唆された。
