Title: Methods in Empirical Prosody Research
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/rs/bookSingle.cfm?isbn=978-3-11-018856-1&fg=SK&L=E
Series Title: Language, Context and Cognition 3
Description:

This book contains a collection of cutting-edge papers on methodological
aspects of prosody research. Current approaches to the gathering,
treatment, and interpretation of prosodic data are discussed by experts in
the field, illustrated by their own empirical research. Contributions focus
on the choice and measurement of prosodic parameters, the establishment of
prosodic categories, annotation structures for spoken-language data, and
experimental methods for production and perception studies (including the
construction of materials, modes of presentation, online vs. offline tasks,
judgement scales, data processing, and statistical evaluation). The volume
will serve as a handbook linking data collection and interpretation,
allowing researchers in linguistics and related fields to make more
informed decisions concerning their empirical work in prosody.
