Abstract:

Using examples from a wide variety of languages, this book reveals why
speakers vary their pitch, what these variations mean, and how they
are integrated into our grammars. All languages use modulations in
pitch to form utterances. Pitch modulation encodes lexical "tone" to
signal boundaries between morphemes or words, and encodes "intonation"
to give words and sentences an additional meaning that isn't part of
their original sense.
