Quick question, and perhaps a natural extension of some of my previous questions.
For the girl speaking here at 1:09, what phonetic and phonological characteristics of her accent, and how do they give it away that she is Chinese American?
While she definitely has LA area intonation patterns, I don't think solely that comprises her accent, as I can certainly imagine caucasian speakers from LA speaking with that intonation.
I feel, vaguely, there's something about her pitch being different on average, and perhaps something about her formants being broader(?), almost post-pubescent, if that makes any sense at all? If not, please just disregard this.
