This book focuses on the description and analysis of the "prosodic"
features of speech, including length, accent and stress, tone, and
intonation. Fox identifies criteria for defining these features and
examines the features in depth from a variety of theoretical
perspectives. Throughout, he emphasizes the relationships and
interdependencies between the different features and their place in
the overall structure and organization of utterances.
