	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;
