Title: English Intonation Pb and Audio CD
Subtitle: An Introduction
Written By: JohnCWells
Description:

Intonation - the rise and fall of pitch in our voices - plays a crucial
role in how we express meaning. This accessible introduction shows students
how to recognize and reproduce the intonation patterns of English,
providing clear explanations of what they mean and how they are used. It
looks in particular at three key functions of intonation - to express our
attitude, to structure our messages to one another, and to focus attention
on particular parts of what we are saying. An invaluable guide to how
English intonation works, it is complete with extensive exercises, drills
and practice material, encouraging students to produce and understand the
intonation patterns for themselves. The accompanying CD contains a wealth
of spoken examples, clearly demonstrating English intonation in context.
Drawing on the perspectives of both language teaching and linguistics, this
textbook will be welcomed by both learners of English, and beginning
undergraduates in phonetics and linguistics.
