Do you know the meaning of the KaniWani pitch accent colors? They show multiple pitch accent but I’d to stick to Standard Japanese to not have broken speech and I have no idea which region each of the pitch accent they show is from.

They correspond to the parts of speech below: noun or suru verb. Heiban 平板 for when it’s a noun on its own and Nakadaka 中高 for when it’s used with する.

Almost all pitch accent dictionaries reference Tokyo-ben so you should be fine.

Ohhh thanks
