intonation in your conlangs

I've been observing that when I speak or read Ikanirae Seru, my
intonation pattern is different from how I talk in English.  I think it
has something to do with all the syllables being (C)V - the rhythm is
more regular and almost staccato, and there seems to be some sort of
correlation between stress and pitch - stressed syllables usually have
a higher pitch than unstressed ones, but sometimes it's the other way
round, I haven't figured out the pattern yet if there is one.

Anyone else notice that they have different intonation patterns in
their conlang?
