Abstract:
			
Discourse Intonation in L2: From theory and research to
practice by Dorothy M. Chun, University of California, Santa
Barbara

Intonation, rhythm, and general melody of language are among the first
aspects of speech that infants attend to and produce themselves. Yet,
these same features are among the last to be mastered by adult L2
learners. Why is this, and how can L2 learners be helped? This book
first presents the latest linguistic theories of intonation, in
particular, how intonation functions in discourse not only to signal
sentence types and attitudinal meanings but also to provide
turn-taking and other conversational cues. The second part of the book
examines the research in applied linguistics on the acquisition of L2
phonology and intonation. The third section offers practical
applications of how to incorporate the teaching of intonation into L2
instruction, with a focus on using new speech technologies.

The accompanying CD-ROM makes a unique addition in allowing for
simultaneous audio playback and visual display of the pitch contours
of utterances contained in the book. Users can start or stop the
playback at any point in the utterance and can observe first-hand how
such visual and audio representations could be useful for L2 learners.
