  • 90. Be sure that the intonation of the resulting sentence still works!For example, if you want to cut out relative clause that typically does not work, since in the original the sentence before the relative clause ends on a high pitch (because of the imaginary comma). If you remove the relative sentence, the remaining part would need to end on a low pitch (because you’ve replaced the comma with an imaginary full stop).
  • 91. Cut on a zerocrossingor on „s“-sounds These always sound exactly the same for a given person. Vowels sound differently depending on where they are used.
