The current paper presents a preliminary study of Modern Hebrew prosody using a quantitative model. In a small corpus of segmentally identical utterances the place of focus and sentence mode were systematically varied. Following the rationale of MFGI, the Mixdorff-Fujisaki Model of German intonation, the phonetic properties of the contrast lending intonemes were examined. These properties are remarkably similar to those of German: The place of focus is marked by high accent command amplitudes and reduction of post-focal accents whereas pre-focal accents remain almost unaffected. Questions and non-terminal utterances are marked by rising intonation on the last accented item.
