Abstract:

The book is the first to apply David Brazil's Discourse Intonation systems
(prominence, tone, key and termination) to the study of a corpus of
authentic, naturally-occurring spoken discourses. The Hong Kong Corpus of
Spoken English (prosodic) is made up of approximately one million words
consisting of four sub-corpora of equal size, namely academic,
conversation, business and public. The participants are all adults and
typically have either Cantonese or English as their first language. The
four Discourse Intonation systems are described in terms of how the system
works and how they are manifested in the corpus, both across the
sub-corpora and also across speakers in the corpus. The book is accompanied
with a CD containing the prosodically transcribed corpus together with
iConc which is the software designed and written specifically to
interrogate the HKCSE (prosodic). The issues raised and discussed are all
of importance in Conversation Analysis, Corpus Linguistics, Disco
urse Analysis, Discourse Intonation, Pragmatics, and Intercultural
Communication.
