|Abstract ||:||The Ryukyu dialect is a general term for the dialects distributed over four island groups: Amami, Okinawa, Miyako and Yaeyama, and it represents a major divergence within the Japanese language with the mainland Japanese dialect.
Thus it is important to study the Ryukyu dialect in order to understand clearly ancient Japanese, the historical changes in Japanese and finally modern Japanese. Up to now, the Ryukyu dialects have been studied almost strictly auraly, and few studies have been done in terms of engineering.
In this paper, we took up the Shuri dialect as the standard Ryukyuan dialect, and statistically analyzed its accent pattern. We also objectively examined the traditional linguistic understanding of it, utilizing the digital signal processing technique. As a result, we confirmed the traditional linguistic understandings and expressed them more precisely.|
