- Lisu language, tonal pattern, phonetic types.
- This paper adopts the method of acoustic experiment. Using computer and voice processing software, a comprehensive phonology analysis on tones of Lisu language is made to summarize and describe its phonetic features; a system of tonal pattern of Lisu language is established from the perspective of tonal features. Through collected experimental data, tonal charts which clearly represent adjustment patterns, duration of tones, tonal ranges and tone values of Lisu language are made by computer software. The tense and lax tones of Lisu language are analyzed from the angle of phonation modes. The author hopes to provide more detailed and accurate synchronic data on experimental study of tones of minority languages, and try to find out the tonal rules of Lisu language.
