Subject: New Book: Phonetics, Phonology

Please post the following book:

Ladd, D. Robert (University of Edinburgh); Intonational Phonology;
ISBN:0-521-47575-9; Paperback; 6 X 9; 349 pp.; Pub. Date: 01/13/97;
PUBLISHER:Cambridge University Press; $23.95; 

Intonation is becoming increasingly prominent in areas from phonology
to speech recognition. Ladd gives an exceptionally clear overview of
the key ideas of Pierrehumbert's autosegmental-metrical theory to
intonational phonology, and discusses alternative approaches. He also
looks critically at the version put forward by generativists, and
offers his own solutions. This book will appeal to phonologists as an
original contribution, and will be welcomed by students and
researchers, who will find in it the ideal overview of recent work.;

Contents: 1. Introduction to intonational phonology; 2. Fundamental
concepts of the autosegmental-metrical theory; 3. Phonological
representation of pitch in the AM theory; 4. Cross-language comparison
of intonation; 5. Patterns of prominence; 6. Prosodic structure; 7. !
Pitch range.;
