[Histling-l] Tone and vowel height

Dear colleagues,

I'm looking for examples of tone splits conditioned by vowel height, or of vowel height as a mechanism in tonogenesis. The only case I'm aware of is the Angkuic language U (described in Svantesson 1989), in which high level tone split, remaining high level in syllables with high vowels, and becoming low in syllables with non-high vowels. Does anyone know of any other examples?

Many thanks in advance,
Laura Arnold
