Abstract:
			
This is the first comprehensive account of Hungarian stress and
intonation to appear in English. The emphasis is on description, but a
large number of theoretical issues are also dealt with in an original
way. Hungarian is a Uralic or Finno-Agric language spoken by over
thirteen million people in Central Europe. The study of its stress and
intonation will be of special interest to intonationists,
phonologists, Hungarian language specialists, and their students at
intermediate level and above.
