Description:

This second edition presents a completely revised overview of research on intonational phonology since the 1970s, including new material on research developments since the mid-1990s. It contains a new section discussing the research on the alignment of pitch features that has developed since the first edition was published, a substantially rewritten section on ToBI transcription that takes account of the application of ToBI principles to other languages, and new sections on the phonetic research on accent and focus. The substantive chapters on the analysis and transcription of pitch contours, pitch range, sentence stress, and prosodic structure have been re-organised and in many cases rewritten. In addition, there is an associated website with sound files of the example sentences from several languages discussed in the book. This pioneering and well-known study will continue to appeal to researchers and graduate students in the field of phonology.
