Abstract:

The volume represents a state-of-the-art snapshot of the research on prosody
for phoneticians, linguists and speech technologists. It covers well-known
models and languages. How are prosodies linked to speech sounds? What are the
relations between prosody and grammar? What does speech perception tell us
about prosody, particularly about the constituting elements of intonation and
rhythm? The papers of the volume address questions like these with a special
focus on how the notion of context-based coding, the knowledge of prosodic
functions and the communicative embedding of prosodic elements can advance our
understanding of prosody.
