I would like to understand what is the difference in lignuistic betwen pitch and intensity. On the picture (taken from native HK speaker), I have a Cantonese sentence.
Nei5 Jiu3 Caa4 Maa3 ?
Would you like tea?
Nei Jiuis on the first line.
Caa Maais on the second line.
The blue line shows the pitch (tonality) and yellow the intensity with software Praat.
For instance, I find interesting the word Tea
Caa (cf range 0.38348). Indeed,
Caa goes down in terms of pitch but when it goes down on the pitch, it does not go down in intensity.
As a beginner, I was thinking that pitch, and intensity must go on same direction. Can someone explain me why it does not go in the same direction?
