In this paper we describe an approach to carry out morphological analysis of tone marked Kinyarwanda text. Kinyarwanda is an agglutinating tonal Bantu language with a complex morphological structure. Results obtained from these experiments were compared to results obtained with analysis of tone unmarked text.

We found that analysis results from tone marked text were less ambiguous compared to similar analysis on tone unmarked text. The autosegmental-metrical model of intonational p honology is a model of in tonational structure developed over the past 35 years on the ba sis of empirical evidence from speech production and.
