Re: AP in all of us? New evidence from speech research

I have had very little exposure to any of the Chinese languages but as I recall,
in linguistics one of the Chinese staff members at the university talked with us
and told us that the pitch (literal relational inflection) of words determined
the meaning of words which were pronounced the same and inly differed in pitch.
Is this incorrect?  I have not done any work in this area so have only very
limited knowledge of this aspect.
