singing/melody-writing and pronunciation

Post by Paragon » Fri 04.20.2007 2:18 am

Since Japanese accents are based on higher pitches (as opposed to english's stress accents), do japanese songwriters tend to write melodies that go up at specific syllables to account for that, so the singers will be comprehensible?
