Book Information

   

Title: Intonational Phonology
Written By: D. Robert Ladd
Description:

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.
