Abstract:

Tone and Intonation are two types of pitch variation, which are used
by speakers of all languages in order to give shape to
utterances. More specifically, tone encodes segments and morphemes,
and intonation gives utterances a further discoursal meaning that is
independent of the meanings of the words themselves. In this
comprehensive survey, Carlos Gussenhoven provides an up-to-date
overview of research into tone and intonation, discussing why speakers
vary their pitch, what pitch variations mean, and how they are
integrated into our grammars. He also explains why intonation in part
appears to be universally understood, while at other times it is
language-specific and can lead to misunderstandings. After eight
chapters on general topics relating to pitch modulation, the book's
central arguments are illustrated with comprehensive phonological
descriptions - partly in Optimality Theory - of the tonal and
intonational systems of six languages, including Japanese, Dutch, and
English.
