Dear collegues:

Days ago I posted a query on the LIST about the intonation studies in the
discourse framework. I've sinve received a number of very helpful responses,
which I'm summing below.

First my very sincere thanks to: (Malcolm Ross) (Jane Setter) (Mark Janse) (Andrew R. Linn)
Lucy Eliot <>
Gregory Ward <> (Christoph Gutknecht)
Stuart Luppescu <>

The following are some bibliographical information that I've obtained viz LIST:
 Brazil, D. 1975. Discourse Intonation. Discourse Analysis Monographs
1, English Language Research, University of Birmingham.

 Brazil, D. 1978. Discourse Intonation II. Discourse Analysis
Monographs 2, English Language Research, University of Birmingham.

Bolinger, D. 1986. Intonation and its parts
- 1089.Intonation and its uses

Paul Tench 'The Intonation Systems of English' (London/NY: Cassell). 
- 1990 'The Roles of Intonation in English Discourse' (Frankfurt am Main:

Adam Brown (ed.): Teaching English Pronunciation. A book of readings.
London/New York 1991: Routledge. ISBN: 0-415-05960-7.

 Also, D. Robert Ladd did a very interesting dissertation at Cornell on 
intonation and discourse that was later published (by Cornell
University Press)

Thanks to all again and any further information is still warmly welcomed.
