Prosodic Typology: The Phonology of Intonation and Phrasing

Editat de Sun-Ah Jun
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 21 dec 2006
This book illustrates an approach to prosodic typology through descriptions of the intonation and the prosodic structure of thirteen typologically different languages based on the same theoretical framework, the 'autosegmental-metrical' model of intonational phonology, and the transcription system of prosody known as Tones and Break Indices (ToBI). It is the first book introducing the history and principles of this system and it covers European languages, Asianlanguages, an Australian aboriginal language, and an American Indian language. The book shows how languages and dialects are similar to or different from other languages or dialect varieties in terms of the prosodic structure, the intonational categories, and their realizations. This is the first book onintonation which is accompanied by a companion website hosting the sound files mentioned in each chapter.
