Abstract: Mandarin has four lexical tones and Hong Kong Cantonese has six lexical tones. The pitch pattern of T1 and T4 in Mandarin is high level and high falling. According to the results of previous research, the pitch boundary of T1 and T4 by native speakers of Mandarin is categorical. Using the synthesized disyllable real words as stimuli, this paper aims to examine the identification and discrimination of Mandarin T1 and T4 by 24 native speakers of Hong Kong Cantonese. The finding of this study can provide reference to Cantonese studies and language teaching in Hong Kong.
