Example 3         original: final falling pattern; resynthesis: final rising pattern
Example 4         original: final rising pattern; resynthesis: final falling pattern
Example 5         original: two phrases with final falling patterns within an utterance;
                           resynthesis one: two final rising patterns;
                           resynthesis two: original falling pattern followed by resynthesized rising pattern;
                           resynthesis three: resynthesized rising pattern followed by original falling pattern
2. Complex examples
