	 Comment: Includes CD

This book illustrates an approach to prosodic typology through
descriptions of the intonation and the prosodic structure of thirteen
typologically different languages based on the same theoretical
framework, the 'autosegmental-metrical' model of intonational
phonology, and the transcription system of prosody known as Tones and
Break Indices (ToBI). It is the first book introducing the history and
principles of this system and it covers European languages, Asian
languages, an Australian aboriginal language, and an American Indian
language. The book shows how languages and dialects are similar to or
different from other languages or dialect varieties in terms of the
prosodic structure, the intonational categories, and their
realizations. This is the first book on intonation which is
accompanied by a CD-ROM where sound files mentioned in each chapter
are stored.
