H*L close to H*L

It may happen that a non-final H*L is so close to the next H*L that it is not very clear whether the non-final H*L actually falls, or whether there is no L between the H*'s. In such cases, the contour may still sound like a sequence of two H*L's, and so we still transcibe H*L H*L L%. In section 1.7 Downstep with spreading we will learn contours with single H*'s. Here is an example with two H*L pitch accents on one word.
