Title: Prosodic Orientation in English Conversation
Written By: Beatrice Szczepek Reed

This study is the first to describe and analyze prosodic orientation, a
conversational strategy by which speakers design their speaking voice
according to the vocal patterns used by their conversational partners. The
analyses are based on instances of natural everyday talk. The book explores
forms and functions of prosodic orientation, and offers a new perspective
on prosody in conversation.
