Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book presents an experimental-phonetic approach to the study of intonation, defined as the ensemble of pitch variations in speech. It gives a detailed explication of the analysis of intonation by means of the stylization method: studying the perceptual consequences of deliberate simplifications of speech melody makes it possible to give a description in terms of perceptually relevant, discrete events. Theoretical insights and the acoustic, perceptual, and physiological experimental evidence that supports them are amply discussed. Phoneticians and speech scientists will find the innovative, unique features of this book of interest.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 191-201) and indexes.

Table of Contents

1. Introduction; 2. Phonetic aspects of intonation; 3. The IPO approach; 4. A theory of intonation; 5. Declination; 6. Linguistic generalizations; 7. Applications; 8. Conclusion; References.
