This paper explores the interaction between segmental and suprasegmental features by examining how intonation is realized in the Korean language. This article examines the relative effects of the variables to determine the effects on the F0 rise in the first two syllables in an accentual phrase. The independent variables are onset consonant type, the number of syllables in an accentual phrase, the presence of a coda in the first syllable, and the length of the first vowel. The results in this article show that the laryngeal effect is very strong in Korean. Tokens with heavy syllable structures, either from a long vowel or a coda in the first vowel, have a similar pattern in the effects on F0 rise between the first and second vowels in an accentual phrase, with their presence incurring the smaller F0 rise.
